Hey guys! As usual, I am here with our weekly verse! Sometimes I have a hard time deciding on which verses to use, because there’s SO MANY. But for the next three weeks, with Easter coming up, I think I want to put some focus onto the death and resurrection of Jesus, because that’s what Easter is all about! Take a look!
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
This always reminds me of my high school Spanish teacher since this was her favorite verse, and she taught us to quote it in Spanish. After that, is became one of my favorites, too. Jesus was always telling his followers what was going to happen to Him, but here, He is telling us that a form of “resurrection” can happen to us, too. Jesus defeated sin and death, so that if we accept Him, we can go to Heaven to be with Him and have an eternal life. We may die in this world, but that is just us waking up in the next world, where we will live forever. To have this, we must be “resurrected”, or rather, we must accept Jesus into our hearts.
I hope this encourages you to accept the Lord! He IS the resurrection and the life!
As always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful week!
