Promise of Eternal Life (4/2/2023)

“And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John

11:26).


Since Martha is distraught about the death of her brother Lazarus, Jesus has just

attempted to convince her of his power to resurrect Lazarus physically. Then He has

inserted the reality of one being resurrected to life eternal.


In this verse he tries to make sure she understands the reality of His teaching: those

who remain faithful will be resurrected to a state of living on eternally with Him in

the next life. She says in the following verse that she understands.


Our message from this verse is that we shall all die physically, but those who are

faithful to the Lord have the promise of moving on to a state of never dying

again—that is, we can enjoy the benefits of eternal life in heaven for ever and ever.
