Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
– John 11:25
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This verse is a sentence Jesus said when he brought Lazarus back to life. Before the resurrection of Lazarus, thesaid this sentence to tell people that human’s life is under God’s control. God wants to let a person die or live, it’s just a matter of saying a word. This is God’s authority. God’s words say, “God has the authority to have a person die, to have his soul leave his body and return to Hades, or wherever it should go. When someone dies, and where they go after death—these are determined by God. He can do this anytime and anywhere. He is not constrained by humans, events, objects, space, or place. If He wants to do it He can do it, because all things and living beings are under His rule, and all things live and die by His word, His authority. He can resurrect a dead man—this is also something He can do anytime, anywhere. This is the authority that only the Creator possesses.” Because of God’s authority, God says that He can resurrect a dead man. At the same time, God communicates to people by this matter that the life and death of mankind is in His hands, and He is in charge of everything in heaven and earth. There is no salvation but through Him. Only those who believe in Him can gain life! So God said, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Mat 10: 28). Amen!
