John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Promise: God promises that belief in Jesus gives eternal life and that physical death is not the end of our life.
Why is it important to know this promise?
God’s character is revealed: His Sovereignty, Creator, Hope, and Eternality.
Promise provides me with: assurance that there is life after death, knowledge that Jesus conquered death and that though Him we can too, that Jesus in the source of eternal life and that faith in him will give me eternal life.
I love this promise with it’s bold question about my faith. Jesus wants us to know that He is the source of eternal life and that it is available to us through faith in Him. He also states with certainty that He is greater than death and will provide life for me now and into eternity. In a day and age when doubt is king and absolutes are fuzzy, I take great comfort in knowing without a shadow of a doubt that God is in control and though his son Jesus I can spend eternity with Him. Do you have that saving faith? Know him today and seal your future for eternity. Check on your status with John 3:16, 1 John 1:9, and know 2Corinthians 1:21-22. Let’s move forward and face this day with saving faith in the assurance that God is with us and will be with us for eternity.
