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 it’s easy to forget it exists? I remember riding my bike through a neighborhood a few weeks ago and I saw a house for sale. I had ridden by this house probably hundreds of times but forgot it was there until someone stuck a “For Sale” sign in the yard.
I think it’s easy to do the same thing with Jesus and our salvation. If we’ve been in church for awhile 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 much 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.
