Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [4/9/19]

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?” John 11:25-26 (NIV)

Passage: John 11:17-27

Jesus said this to Martha, one of Lazarus’ sisters, just before He raised Lazarus from the dead.  What a miraculous event it must have been!  The crowd that had gathered to comfort Mary and Martha, after Lazarus’ death, must have been truly amazed!  As the anticipation of Easter or Resurrection Sunday builds, may we intimately sense the redemptive power of the work that Jesus did for us upon the cross.  May we have a deeper appreciation for what it means to lay down our life for the glory of God and to the benefit of others.  May we find the needed courage, faith, and desire to lay down our lives and really follow Jesus.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
