Jesus The meaning of live

John 11:1-26
I want to tell you:
Jesus is the only reason we live. Jesus came so that we might have life.

John 10:10 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I. Most people today donít have life, they have existence:
a. They are fighting to live and living to fight.
b. They are drawing their breath and drawing a salaryÖ one day is turning into another.
C. they have existence but they donít have life.
(Answer) they got it all backwards.

II. Lets take life for a minute and look at it life L.I.F.E. / life is the way we live L.I.V.E.
a. If you take live and spell it backward what is it E.V.I.L. (live backwards)

b. After youíve lived and if you havenít lived for JESUS, if youíve lived for some other reason.
. When your life is over and youíve lived without Jesus..
. Just spell lived backwards D.E.V.I.L.

(Answer)Folks-Jesus has come so that you might have life/
Satin wants to rob you of that life.
The devil comes to still kill and destroy.
We are not fools for following Jesus Christ.
Jesus wants you to have life to the full.

Many people donít have life they donít even know what life is/ They donít understand life they live there lives very pessimistically: Riley said ďyouth is a blunder, manhood a struggle, old age a regretĒ . This might be true if you donít know the LORD JESUS.
Shakespeare said ď life is a tale told by an idiot full of sound a furry signifying nothingĒ

Some college students were asked to give the definitions of life for the school news paper: here is what some students wrote who won honorable mention:
ďLife is a joke, that isnít even funnyĒ
Another said ďlife is a disease and death is the cureĒ
One said ďlife is a jail sentence that we get for the crime of being bornĒ

Think about Dr. Jack Kevorkian Dr. Death I wander what makes that man tick.
He said about faith and life Dr DeathĒ Some people base there whole life on mythology (he thinks what we believe is a myth) Religion is an internal spiritual world, I have my own god Johan Sebastian Bach (thatís his god, he goes on to say) at least my god is real (yes and his god is dead)Ē

Letís read what the LORD JESUS says about life:
John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Iíd rather go with what Jesus said than what those Shakespeare or Kevorkian or those collage students said or any person that doesnít understand the meaning of life.

This is the greatest truth. This is the truth we need to learn.
We have been studying 7 miracles in the gospel of John
