Recently I have been dealing with death as my childhood friend died of brain cancer. Jesus says, “I am the Resurrection and the life.” This good news got me through this terrible time.
Jesus is the Resurrection and the life! If we believe in Jesus as Martha at the tomb of Lazarus in John 11:21-27 did, we too shall experience the resurrection and the abundant life.
The good news of Easter for us is captured in the dialogue between Jesus and Martha at the Tomb of Lazarus.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live even if he dies, and the one who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
She replied, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God who comes into the world.” (John 11:21-27 NET.)
