Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”
John 11:26 (NLT)
Martha’s brother had died. When Jesus came to Martha’s house, she said to Jesus, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask.” What an amazing faith she had. And yet, Jesus felt compelled to ask her if she believed that those who believe in Jesus will never die. Her answer was immediate, “Yes, Lord,” she told him. “I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God.” It is one thing to say someone else is going to be with Jesus forever, but when faced with your own finiteness, what do you believe? Will you live with Him forever? Martha personally knew Jesus as the Messiah, the one sent from God and it impacted her faith. Today, we get the benefit of the scriptures that teach us so much more about Jesus. We have the Holy Spirit, the very indwelling of our Holy God’s Spirit to guide us into all truth and to bear witness of the truth of Jesus and our eternal life with Him. Today, let the faith of Martha be your example and hear the words of Jesus, “Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die.”
Dear Jesus, thank You for Your love, sacrificial death and resurrection. Thank You for Your promise of eternal life to all who believe. Lord, I believe.
