Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”John 11:25-26
A good friend of Jesus named Lazareth had just died. Jesus went to see his sisters, Mary and Martha to comfort and console them. When He got there, Martha clung to Jesus and told Him that if He had only been there, then their brother wouldn’t have died. However, Jesus knew something that Martha didn’t understand. He was the giver of life. Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ will find life. True life in Him and with Him. Martha could only see the temporary, carnal world. Jesus could see eternity.
Do you see as Martha sees, only the here and now? Or do you trust the Lord to be your life? He brings life through His resurrected life. If we find our life in Him and believe in Him, we will find eternal life. We will be able to fix our eyes on Him and all things eternal.
A Prayer to Remember
May I find my life in you. Help me focus on what is everlasting and eternal, not on what is temporary and in front of me. Amen
