Today’s devotion is based on John 11:25,26, “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die, and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Confronted by Jesus’ statement, some say Jesus is a liar. Others say that he is a lunatic. But the biblical records do not support these conclusions, leaving you with only one other conclusion. Jesus is who he claims to be. He is God the Son, who became fully human. He came here to live a life of perfect goodness on our behalf. He came to suffer and die for our every sin. Then, to demonstrate who he is and what he’s accomplished, he raised himself to life three days later. Do you believe this? I hope so, for your life depends on it.
Please pray with me: Lord Jesus, you are the resurrection and the life. Empower me to live and believe in you. Amen.
