August 15, 2021 • Resurrection & Life

In The Gospel of John, Jesus works miracle after miracle in hopes that people will see the miracle and believe His Word. In fact, in the Gospel of John, miracles are not called miracles, they are called “signs”…signs that point to Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God; signs that prove His Word is true and trustworthy.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus changes water into wine; He heals a lame man, a blind man, and a sick boy. Jesus miraculously feeds 5000 people, and He walks on water. Still, the Jews do not believe, and especially the leaders of the Jews.

So the last miracle Jesus performs is right outside the city gates of Jerusalem! Many people will see it, and it will be the talk of the town! That miracle is the raising of Lazarus from the dead!

Jesus raised Lazarus so that you would trust His Word and promises! If Jesus can raise the dead then all His Word and promises are true also! His word can do what it says it will do! If Jesus can raise Lazarus from the dead, and Himself from the dead, then He can raise you from the dead as well!

Trust His promises about eternal life!

Believe the Word of Jesus. He is faithful and His Word is true! He keeps every single promise that He makes! And He promises that you have spiritual life right now, and He gives you the confident hope of resurrected life later!

Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life he who believes in me though he dies yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die!” Amen!
