He is Risen! Alleluia Alleluia!
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. John 11:25
Jesus is saying that even if the outer man dies, the believer will live in the outer man again since Jesus is the resurrection. But more than that, the believer already has eternal life in the inner man and he will never die in the inner man. This body that we all have will perish one day but our souls live forever. Therefore our focus should not only be on the physical body but on the soul as it live on into eternity.
The resurrection is one manifestation of eternal life; it is something that comes from the Lord Himself. Jesus is what people need. Jesus asserted here that He has the power to raise people from the dead and give them life. No other mortal could ever make this statement.
By “resurrection” Jesus annulled death; by “life” He gave the quality of God’s life and that without end. “Life” here is the life of God, eternal life. He is the One who causes someone to live into eternity.
Belief is the only requirement for possessing eternal life. Jesus will raise only believers to eternal life. The believer is pictured as dead physically at some point. Jesus compared physical death with spiritual life, eternal life in glory. This is the life lived in heaven for us the believers. Even though Jesus’ believers will die physically, we will eternally live spiritually. We will possess eternal life in glory.
Jesus is first the “resurrection” and then the “life.” The resurrection of Christ will lead to eternal life. He Himself is the source for this. Because He lives, we too shall live. He conquered death.
Jesus’ resurrection makes the way for eternal life.
Choose to live, not just physically but spiritually.
