√ Jesus’s resurrection was to make DEAD people ALIVE.
(Romans 8:11 NLT) The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.
√ Jesus’s resurrection gives you the power to close the gap between the life you ARE LIVING and COULD LIVE.
(2 Corinthians 1:8 MSG) ‘We don’t want you in the dark, friends, about how hard it was when all this came down on us in Asia province. It was so bad we didn’t think we were going to make it. We felt like we’d been sent to death row, that it was all over for us. As it turned out, it was the best thing that could have happened…”
(2 Corinthians 1:9 MSG) . . . Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get out of it, we were forced to trust God totally—not a bad idea since he’s the God who raises the dead! . . .
(Romans 4:17 NLT) … God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations.” This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing.
(John 11:3 NIV) So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”
(John 11:5-6 NIV) Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days,
(John 11:11-12 NIV) (Jesus) told them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.” His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.”
(John 11:14-15 NIV) So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”
(John 11:20-24 NIV) When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
(John 11:25-26 NIV) Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;
and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. . . .
√ Do you BELIEVE?
(John 11:26 NIV) . . . Do you believe this?”
(Ephesians 1:19-20 NIV) … His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead …
