“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
– Jesus speaking to Martha after the death of her brother Lazarus.
With Easter approaching when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ it is a great time to stop and consider – do I believe this? There are all sorts of programs on TV this week that are taking a look at Jesus. CNN’s American Morning crew broadcasted live from the Holy Land this morning and they are looking into “The Truth about Jesus.” We can believe Jesus, because of the empty tomb. Because Jesus rose from the dead those who know Jesus Christ can be certain that they too will be raised from the dead.
