25:Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.
26:And everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
Heavenly Father, thank You for these earth-shattering words, spoken to the grieving sister of Lazarus.
Thank You that Jesus used these words to develop Martha’s faith and to deepen her dependence upon Him.
Help me never to forget that however small my faith may be, God is working in me every day to strengthen my trust in Him so that I may grow in grace and learn to depend on Him, no matter what circumstances I may have to face.
Thank You that my life is hid with Christ in God. Enlarge my faith in Your Word of truth and increase my understanding of who You truly are (Whom to know is life eternal), not only in the future but here and now. In Jesus’ name, I pray Amen.
