Word of the Day... June 28, 2013

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26

I do believe this with all of my heart. As Christians we have three great enemies: sin, Satan, and death.  When I read this scripture I believe Jesus and I know that when I die, I will be with Jesus!!! Like that old song says because He lives I can face tomorrow.  Because He lives all fear is gone. I know what my future holds.  Because I am a child of God I no longer have to fear death or hell. Jesus told us “I Am the resurrection and the life” He who believes in Me shall never die and I know that I can believe it.

I know that as long I am in this fallen body that I will make mistakes and sin.  I am so thankful that I have Jesus to go to.  As Christians in this period of time we are so lucky to have a completed Bible and the precious Holy Spirit to help us and guide us.  As we read the Word we become stronger and more in tune with the Holy Spirit. He is our greatest Helper.

As far as Satan goes, well Jesus defeated him at the cross.  I am not going to worry about him.  I have the Holy Spirit and my Bible that will get me through anything. Jesus told us: In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. (John14: 2-3).  You don’t know just how happy that makes me!!!

I can't even wrap my mind around how hopeless our lives would be if these promises were not true. Every cemetery would be a monument to despair and the futility of human life.  But thank the Lord Jesus His words are true!!!

What a glorious hope we have….  Jesus is alive!!!  Maranatha!!!
