The Essential 100, Day 65
Jesus is the resurrection and the life. He is able to work through any situation. We can trust in him and live both now and eternally. Read John 11.
No matter what we are going through, Jesus is the resurrection. And just like Mary and Martha learned in this chapter, Jesus’s power does not just extend into eternal life, but Jesus has power over life now. Do we trust in Jesus to give us life and life more abundantly?
Not everything in life is going to be perfect and roses. In fact, following Jesus is a life of sacrifice and surrender. Still, only through Jesus can we truly live and only through Jesus do we understand that a life of sacrifice and surrender is what it means to truly live. Do we live through Jesus? Do we understand that he is the resurrection of our life both now and in the future?
