THEME: I AM
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
-Lazarus was sick before he died & his sisters Mary & Martha sent word for Jesus with the message “Lord; behold he who you love is sick” (Jn 11:3). It is through the same love that Jesus has for us, that He died on the cross for our sins & resurrected so that we who were dead to sin may have abundant life through His grace. When Jesus instructed them to remove the stone to the tomb, Martha interjected Him & cautioned that there was a great stench; for Lazarus had laid dead for four days. Jesus took notice of her unbelief, affirmed her faith, & many who witnessed the resurrection believed in Him; which we are all called to do. Sometimes we also have our own moments of unbelief & question the word of God especially when things do go our way or take long to materialize. Jesus reminds us that He knew us before the foundations of this world & has great plans for our lives despite our fears. He resuscitates our spirits when we are dead in weakness, wickedness, anxiety, fear & gives us strength, hope, purpose, direction, faith & many other victories through the battles that we face. Jesus died so that we may live forever & resurrected so that we may have victory through the power of the Holy Spirit Who raised Him from the dead & lives in us.
We praise You Jesus & glorify Your holy name for You died for our sins & made us alive when we were dead to trespasses, have mercy on us Lord. Help us Lord to always trust in You despite the difficulties that we face. Some among us are grieving the loss of their loved ones, others are confused in various life situations & others still are asking questions why they are going through hard times or delay, comfort us all Holy Spirit by Your grace. Help us Jesus to always over look our trials & weaknesses, & cast our eyes on You. Give us the strength to always give thanks to You Lord in all situations. We also ask You dear Father to help us so that we may have complete trust in You for You are the resurrection & the life, & have assured us that You love us with an everlasting love. Amen
