Jesus Is The Resurrection And The Life.

John_11-25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live

John_11-25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”. —John 11: 25-26

When we grow up in the world, we are told that we have to do everything that we can before we die, because that is all that we will leave, and that there can be nothing after death.

When we walk with Jesus, even death is not the end! Nothing seems as final as death, and yet Jesus challenges that by declaring Himself the Resurrection and the Life. He stared death in the eye, and death blinked.

When Jesus spoke to Martha in John 11, He made her two promises: THAT WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE ACCESS TO AN ETERNAL LIFE THAT TRUMPS DEATH, AND THAT THERE IS NO ONE AND NOTHING THAT IS TOO FAR GONE THAT JESUS WILL NOT RESTORE IT AGAIN.
Jesus is able to breathe life into every new dream, every hope, every relationship, and even every calling. No matter how much you feel you have strayed, He will always be able to restore you! Ya’ know, maybe it’s your time to pick up the phone and call a loved one or a friend and bring healing to a relationship. Maybe now is the time to step forward to follow what you know is your passion in life. Now may be your time to pursue an education you never thought you could earn.

Through Jesus, you are able to live your life in a way that will always honour God, and that destiny is eternal. It is through the ultimate sacrifices of the Son that we are able to reach the love of our Father, and it is through Jesus’ death and resurrection that we, too will be able to live out eternity at the right hand of the Abba.

My prayer for you, friends, as we finish this 12-day devotional, is that you will never forget that you have eternal life because of Jesus. I hope that you will take every opportunity to glorify God, and bask in His love and compassion for you!

On the resurrection morning

John_11-25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live

John_11-25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live

On the resurrection morning

Soul and body meet again;

No more sorrow, no more

weeping

No more pain!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here a while they must be parted,

And the flesh its Sabbath keep,

Waiting in a holy stillness,

Wrapt in sleep.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a while the tired body

To its resting-place its borne

Till there dawns the last and

brightest

Easter morn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But the soul in contemplation

Utters earnest prayer and strong,

 Breaking at the resurrection Into song.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Soul and body reunited

Thenceforth nothing shall divide

Waking up in Christ’s own likeness,

Satisfied.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh! the beauty, oh! the gladness

Of that resurrection day

Which shall not through endless ages

Pass away!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On that happy Easter morning

All the graves their dead restore;

Father, mother, child, and brethren

Meet once more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To that brightest of all meetings

Bring us, Jesus Christ, at last;

To Thy cross, through death and judgment,

Holding fast.

Romans_5-8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Christ the Lord is risen today! Hallelujah!

Sons of men and angels say, Hallelujah!

Raise your songs and triumphs high: Hallelujah!

Sing! ye heavens; thou earth reply; Hallelujah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love’s redeeming work is done,

Fought the fight, the battle won:

Lo! our sun’s eclipse is over;

 Lo! he sets in blood no more:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,

Christ hath burst the gates of hell;

Death in vain forbids Him rise,

Christ hath opened Paradise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lives again our glorious King:

Where, O death, is now thy sting?

Once He died our souls to save;

Where’s thy victory, O grave?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Soar we now where Christ hath led,

Following our exalted Head:

Made like Him, like Him we rise;

Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hail! the Lord of earth and heaven;

Praise to Thee by both be given,

Thee we greet triumphant now:

Hail ! the Resurrection, Thou!

The Risen Christ. Jesus Welcomes Us To Come To Him Just As We Are.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed. —John 20:29

Charlotte Elliott wrote the hymn “Just As I Am” in 1834. She had been an invalid for many years, and though she wanted to help with a fund-raiser for a girl’s school, she was too ill. She felt useless, and this inner distress caused her to begin doubting her faith in Christ. She wrote “Just As I Am” as a response to her doubt. The crux of her distress is perhaps best expressed in these words:

Just as I am, though tossed about

With many a conflict, many a doubt,

Fightings and fears within, without,

O Lamb of God, I come!

John_11-25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live

John_11-25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live

Three days after His death and burial, Jesus rose from the grave and invited the disciple whom history has nicknamed “Doubting Thomas” to examine the marks of His crucifixion (John 20:27). When Thomas touched Jesus’ wounds, he finally believed in the resurrection. Christ responded, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (v.29).

As Christians today, we are the ones who have not seen but still believe. Yet at times our earthly circumstances create serious questions in our souls. Even then, we cry out: “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). Jesus welcomes us to come to Him just as we are. —Jennifer Benson Schuldt

Prayer:

Dear Jesus Christ, Please help me to trust You when life doesn’t make sense. Please take my doubt and replace it with fresh faith in You.

The risen Christ opens the door for you to have fullness of life.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

Luke 24. He is risen. The Resurrection. Jesus Has Risen! Hallelujah!

1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, 7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 And they remembered his words, 9 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles. 11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 12 Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

13 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. 17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? 18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? 19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 20 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. 25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 28 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. 29 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. 30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? 33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40 And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43 And he took it, and did eat before them. 44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

The resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ from the dead changes everything

Resurrection of Christ

The resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ from the dead changes everything

 

 

Luke 24:5-6

“The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? 6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee,”
NLT

 

No matter who you are, the resurrection of Jesus Christ changes everything. It changes how we think about life and death. It changes the way we approach relationships and grieve over losses. The resurrection also establishes a big difference between Our Lord Jesus and other spiritual or religious leaders. Out of all the religions of the world, only one can boast of its leader being raised from the dead and that’s Christianity.

So the question remains, “What is your response to the resurrection?” Do you deny it and claim to have a greater source than the God-man, Lord  Jesus, who didn’t stay dead? If, so there is no change available to you. You will still be a slave to your sins and without an eternal hope of heaven. On the other hand, to believe in the resurrection is to experience life change. No fear of condemnation for sins. No fear of eternity separated from God. Only the peaceful assurance of God’s love demonstrated on the cross and proclaimed from the empty tomb. Jesus is alive, and He wants to change your life today!

Life Lesson: The resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ from the dead changes everything.

Dear God,
I come to You today in faith, trusting in Your death and resurrection. I believe that You died for me and that three days later, You were alive again. I believe that because of Your resurrection, I can be forgiven. I ask today that You would forgive me of my sins. Change my life today and use me to tell others about the amazing power of Your resurrection. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
