Summary: Finding Eternal Life in Christ.
NEW LIFE IN CHRIST
John 11:1 – 26
Jesus Christ raised three people from the dead!
There was a child that was only twelve
A young man that was on his way to the graveyard
And then there was Lazarus dead and buried in
His tomb for four days already!!!
So basically Jesus broke up every funeral that
He went to!!!
Our life here on this ole earth is quite mysterious
To most of us, And also complex to most of us
There’s many things that they can do today in the
Laboratory like with proteins and cloning
And I don’t even know what all!!!
And I’m sure the list goes on and on
But man will never be able to create life,
Out of nothing.
It’s a terrible understatement that life is only
Chemistry as some atheist chemists believe
It’s a living miracle when we see even the
Simplest forms of life!!
Jesus Christ offering eternal life is really not no
More a miracle than us living to start with!!! AMEN!
There’s been people that have predicted the time
Of their own death
But the only one who not only predicted the time
Of his death but also the day of His resurrection
And we all know that that’s Jesus Christ
Back in Chap 2 Jesus told his critics
Destroy this temple and I will raise it up in three days
And of course the Jews said oh it took forty six
Years to build this temple
And you will raise it in three days???
But they didn’t realize that Jesus was speaking
Of His temple
So when He had risen from the dead
His disciples remembered that He had said this
And they all believed the scripture
And the word that Jesus said!!!
And all through the ages there have been many
Times when God has been victorious in His
Dealings with Man
But the greatest of them all was when Jesus
Christ rose from the dead
In an earth shattering moment
Jesus conquered the three greatest enemies
Of all mankind
HE CONQUERED SIN
HE CONQUERED SATAN
AND HE CONQUERED THE SECOND DEATH
Just like that ole song Victory in Jesus
He won the Victory over Sin
From the beginning in the garden of Eden
Man has been fighting sin
And because we are descendants of Adam
We have inherited this thing called sin from him
Just like little kids
You don’t have to teach them to do wrong
They do it all by themselves
And we have to teach them the right things to do
Romans 5:12 says:
Wherefore as by one man sin entered into
The world, and death by sin and so death
Passed upon all men
For that all have sinned
Sometimes we don’t even want to sin
Because we already know its harmful to
And we just can’t seem to be victorious
Over this little thing called sin
We think its influence over us is so strong
But sin and the devil have no power over us
Its only as powerful as we allow it to be
Romans 7:18 says:
For I know that in me that is in my flesh
Dwelleth no good thing; for to will is present
With me; but how to perform that which
Is good I find not!!!
The Apostle Paul uses the term Flesh in
A variety of ways
Sometimes it simply refers to the phyu7sical
And sometimes it refers to physical descent
But here in VS 18 it’s used in an ethical sense
To refer to a condition of being dominated
By sin and sinful pursuits!
VS. 19 says:
For the good that I would I do not
But the evil which I would not, that I do!
But by the death of Jesus Christ on the
Cross at Calvary
Jesus provided us a way by which our
Sin can be removed
It’s by his resurrection (along with his blood)
That God can declare us
Perfectly righteous in Him
Have you ever been justified or
Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection have
Provided us this way
But you must accept Him in your heart
And believe that God has raised Him
From the dead
YOU WILL BE SAVED!!!
Romans chap. 10 VS. 9 & 10 says:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
The Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine
Heart that God hath raised him from the
Dead, thou shalt be saved
For with the heart man believeth unto
Righteousness; and with the mouth confession
Is made unto salvation!!!
He is there for the asking
And in doing so
You get forgiveness for your sins
And also you get eternal life in heaven
STREETS OF GOLD, GATES OF PEARL
WALLS OF JASPER, AN EVER FLOWING
RIVER OF LIFE!!
And you miss that terrible place called Hell!!!
