I AM the Resurrection & the Life

Martha was struggling to believe.

When Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life,” she said she believed.  But it turns out there were limits to her belief.  Martha simply could not comprehend the full implications of Jesus being the resurrection and the life.  It was beyond what she could imagine.

Sometimes we have trouble imagining a resurrection in our own lives.

“It’s too late,” we believe.

  • “The habit is too strong.”
  • “The wounds are too many.”
  • “The situation has gone on for too long.”

We can believe the same things about a friend.  We wish for a resurrection in their lives, but find it hard to believe it could happen.  “They’re too far gone.”

Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life.  Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”
