Eternal Life

Good Morning!  John 11:25,26 Jesus told 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.  Do you believe this, Martha?"

   Martha's brother Lazarus had died.  When she heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him.  When she found him, she said, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.  But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You."  V.44:9:31  Jesus told her "Your brother will rise again."  And Martha said, "Yes, Lord.  I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."
Raising Lazarus from the dead
   God is so good!  He listens when we are hurting, he hurts when we hurt.  This should work both ways - we should hurt when God is hurting.  When we sin, it hurts God.  We are all His children and he cares for us more than any earthly father could.  When he sees us turn away to earthly things, to drugs, alcohol, and all the other addictions of man, he hurts.  As children we never want to hurt our parents and even as adults and probably more so, we would never intentionally hurt them.  We should feel this way about God, too!  Think before you sin, I am hurting the Lord.  When you have Jesus in your heart, you remember the Father at all times and never want to hurt Him.

   So do not say hurtful things to one another, hold your tongue.  In times of stress, take a deep breath and think, if I do this or say this, will it displease and hurt the Lord?

    What a wonderful promise Jesus gave to us that we shall have eternal life after death because we believe in Him.  Live your life as if tomorrow you may meet with the Father and with the Son.  Wouldn't it be great if everyone adopted this attitude?  Reach out for the gift and you shall receive it.

  Please watch this very beautiful video with words to "Because He Lives" in my upper right side bar to be enriched for the day and forever...  Thank you for coming today and do come back soon.
My Christian heart to yours...

The photo of the tomb of Lazarus, have they found the tomb, is it the real one and how would they know that? I was surprised to see it, because i know nothing about this.
