Want Life?

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. – John 11:25–26ab NKJV. 

Jesus makes the above statement just before bringing Lazarus back to life. Then, Jesus asks Martha, Do you believe this?” Soon after the affirmative response of Martha, Jesus calls Lazarus back to life. In 1 John 5:12 the Bible says, He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 

There are so many who are desperately trying to find life in all the wrong places. They are trying to find life in making more money. They think if they could just make a little more money, they could buy more things and then they would have a life. There are those who are trying to drink their way to having a life. There are those who are trying to do drugs to have a life. There are those who, through sexual immoralities, are trying to have a life. These things do not bring life but death. 1 John 2:15-17 tells us, Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” 

I received a prayer request one night in the past from a man named Randy which really says it all: “Me and my wife ask you pray for us, we just got saved and we got a lot to learn about the Lord. We ask you to pray for us that we never go back doing what we were doing before. God has been good to us never thought it would be like this, couldn’t ask for anything better.” 

Neither could I!!
