'... Do you believe this?' John 11:26 NIV
When Jesus stood at the graveside of Lazarus he told the grieving family one thing we must never forget: '... whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this' (John 11:26 NKJ)? That's the basic question of life: '...Do you believe this?' What's going to take you past death and onto your heavenly home? Jesus and only Jesus! Only he can guarantee you eternal life. He beat death and the grave for you.
You may be reading these words, fighting tears of pain, anger or grief. Perhaps you have lost someone close, or have seen too many horrific images of starving children, or are just plain scared of dying. Like no one else, Jesus understands what you are going through.
The best offer we will receive while we are on this earth is: '... whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.' The important question is: 'Do you believe this' (John 11:26 NKJ)?
So what now? If you know Jesus there's no reason to fear death or the unknown; he's already got it sorted and made a place for you. Unexplainable, unending joy is yours forever because of Jesus.
If you have not given your life to Jesus, don't wait for another time. Give your life to him today and you will be saved, which means when you breathe your last breath - tomorrow or in 80 years - you will pass from death to eternal life.
