Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. – John 11:25 (NLT)
Have you ever noticed when you’re really used to something sometimes you forget that it exists? For example, in my town right now, they are restoring a lot of our main street. There are buildings that I’ve driven past for years, but because of the new paint and windows, I’m starting to notice how interesting they are. I was so used to them, that I didn’t even really notice them all that much.
I think it’s easy to do the same thing with Jesus and our salvation. If you’ve been in church for a while it’s easy to miss the fact that Jesus is the resurrection and life. It’s easy to become so used to hearing these words that they don’t mean anything special to you.
Today, challenge yourself to not just let these be just words. Instead, really think about them. Let them become real to you. Think about the fact that Jesus is our way to God. We couldn’t come to God except through Him. Because of Jesus, we can fellowship with God in a new way.
