PART 5 I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE

I Am, Part 5 Sermon February 12, 2023
Intro: Hiring and Resumes

John 11:25-26 (NIV2011)
25  I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.

 
I am the Resurrection and the Life
Context:
John 11:21-27 (NIV2011)
21  “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
22  But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
23  Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24  Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25  Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” 27  “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”

 
John 11:38-44 (NIV2011)
38  Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39  “Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”
40  Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
41  So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42  I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
43  When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”
44  The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
John 11:25-26 (NIV2011)
25  Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.

 
Those who believe in Jesus will live after death

Rapture of a Christian’s spirit
 
2 Corinthians 5:6-8 (NIV2011) 

6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 
7 For we live by faith, not by sight. 
8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

Example: Bodies wear out

Rapture of a Christian’s resurrected body 
 
1 Corinthians 15:50-53 (NIV2011) 

 I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.

Implications of life after death

Paradigm shift from the temporal to the eternal
Example: British Pounds

Matthew 6:19-20 (NIV2011)
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 
20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…

 
Perseverance in the present
Example: Travel

Those who believe in Jesus will live before death

John 11:23-26 (NIV2011)
23  Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24  Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25  Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”


Romans 6:23 (NIV2011)
23  For the wages of sin is death…


John 5:24 (NIV2011)
24  “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”
