Jesus Is Your Resurrection and Life

by Pastor Ken

When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” He who was dead came out, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Free him, and let him go.”

John 11:43-44

When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” He who was dead came out, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Free him, and let him go.”

Everyone knew Lazarus was dead. He had been in the tomb for four days before Jesus arrived. His body had already begun to decompose. So when Jesus told the mourners to roll away the stone, they were horrified at the thought of the stench they were sure would permeate the air when released from the tomb. But that’s not what happened!

After the stone had been rolled away, Jesus looked up to heaven and prayed, “Father, thank You for hearing Me. I know that You always hear Me, but I said this for the benefit of all these people standing here, so there they may believe that You sent me.”

After He had said this, Jesus shouted in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”

And Lazarus did! The man who had been dead came out—still wrapped in grave clothes from head to toe, but alive, so Jesus said, “Untie him and let him go!” You can read this incredible story of Jesus’ miracle in John 11:38-44.

What a wonderful miracle! Today you have the assurance that this same Jesus—the Jesus you love—has resurrection power. You do not have to fear death. If you believe in Jesus, even if you die, Jesus will resurrect you when He comes again.

Jesus says:

“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live. Everyone who lives and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this?”

John 11:25-26

Yes, Jesus is your Resurrection and your Life. Amen! Hallelujah!
