What Jesus says about himself:
I am God (John 6:35) I am the moral compass (John 8:12)
I am all inclusive (John 10:7) I am protective (John 10:11)
I am the access point (John 14:6) I am the source (John 15:1)
Here is what Jesus is saying when he says I Am the Resurrection…
I am LIFE ITSELF
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
So what does that mean for us today, right now, at this moment?
- Life is available even if you don’t fully understand
“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” John 11:21
- Death dies when LIFE walks into the room.
When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. John 11:33, 38
- You are alive even if you feel dead inside
Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone,” he said. John 11:38-39
Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. Mark 16:2-4
