He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life” (John 8:12 Amplified). Yes, Jesus IS the Life also.
The Father Crafts Jesus’ Words
Jesus offers life everlasting to those who believe, abide, and trust in him. Jesus is God. In the New Testament Jesus says, “The words that I speak aren’t mere words. I don’t just make them up on my own. The Father who resides in me crafts each word into a divine act” (John 14:10b,11 Message).The disciples were learning about the Father by watching Jesus!
Lazarus Raised to Life
Lazarus died four days before Jesus arrived. He Jesus calmed Martha and Mary before he raised his friend Lazarus. Then, Jesus said to her [Martha], “Your brother shall rise again” (John 11:23 NASB). She said she knew he would do so on the last day. Then Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies” (John 11:25 NASB).
Jesus is the life giver and the Life.
Prayer: Father, Thank you for giving us Jesus, he is more than I can comprehend with my mind alone. I have to use my heart.
