Sermons about Life
Imagine the dead being brought back to life. Imagine no longer having to fear death. Imagine your relationship being restored to your creator. Imagine one day with no more pain, hurt, suffering, anger, war, cancer, death. Imagine being in a restored existence. Imagine your mistakes and poor choices not being held against you. This and more was accomplished when Jesus rose from the grave. He alone is our hope and salvation.
1. You can LIVE in exile! 2. Pray for your exile. 3. Don't believe the false prophets.
In John 11 Jesus makes an extraordinary statement to one of His best friends. He told her I am the resurrection and the life. When He arrived in Bethany that day Martha already believed in the resurrection (John 11:24). She already believed in eternal life. She believed that she and Lazarus would have victory over death. Jesus shows her, in His conversation with her that all those things were only true through Him and that she could possess now what she thought could only be hers in the future. I. Through Jesus life has begun (John 11:25) A. This body I inhabit will die 1. It is a tent (II Cor. 5:1) 2. This body is dusty (I Cor. 15:47) 3. Temporary earthen vessel (II Cor. 4:7) B.

Jesus abolished death (II Tim. 1:10) Outside of Bethany Jesus taught Mary that even though her body would die, that she could live. He came to give abundant life. He came to give eternal life. He came to give victory over death. That abundant life, eternal life and victory over death came in a person. That person stood before her. Jesus asked her do you believe that I am the Resurrection and the Life?
