Lord of Life

“I am the resurrection and the life.” (John 11:25 NIV)

There’s a common theme in every resurrection story we read about in the Bible. After funeral arrangements were made and some of the dead were ready to be buried (or were already buried), Jesus came along and disrupted the funeral progression. The son of the widow of Nain was about to be buried but Jesus brought him back to life (see Luke 7:11-17). Then there’s Lazarus who was already buried and Jesus resurrected him (see John 11:1-44).

Jesus is still in the business of restoring lives. When people write us off as dead, giving up on us, deeming us a lost cause, He comes along and brings us back to life, proving to them who He is! While the devil is planning our death and burial, Jesus thwarts his plans. Because Jesus has been there. The devil once planned the Savior’s death and burial, but Jesus triumphed over it all and it is He who promises to resurrect us as well. We can count on Him because He is the Lord of life!
