“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?’” (John 11:25-26, NIV)
The world as we know it “whistles through the graveyard”; that is, it ignores all evidence that we, too, shall die.
Our Lord offers us the only hope of life through death. He, alone, is the resurrection and the life.
Our Lord’s question: “Do you believe this,” is the litmus test. To answer in the affirmative does not keep us out of the graveyard, but because of Jesus the graveyard, for the believer, becomes a passageway, not a destination.
Live each day as one going from life to life. – Luther
