The Resurrection and the Life

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

(John 11:25-26)

Well do you?

The reply that Jesus got to this question was: “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.” (John 11:27)

Jesus Christ is our hope for eternal life, of this there can be no doubt whatsoever.  But this is not all, He is also our hope for life on this earth.  In Christ we can find fulfillment, satisfaction, peace and purpose.  If you want to live a full life, you will find it in Christ; when you really come to understand what you have and how to live.  As you go to work today, or as you deal with all of the cares of life, keep your focus on what you have in Jesus… see how your outlook will change.  For more on how our lives can gain purpose and direction, see my recent post on Individual Prayer.
