thought for the day

John 11:25-26

I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even thought they die, and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?

Who or what am I relying on today for resurrection and life? How easy it is to grab hold of that newest thinking, latest diet, fab looking kitchen, new wardrobe and put our hope in those things for new life, for a resurrection that will see us through. Christ at times can feel one step removed, at a distance, unreachable but He asks us to believe.To hold fast to faith in Him. He sees the bigger picture. He knows the fuller story.

Let Him be your resurrection and life today. That may come easily, it may be a battle, but keep holing firm. His life and resurrection are everlasting. Diet wisdom changes, wardrobes go out of fashion, shrink, become baggy, family needs change and the kitchen no longer works, finger prints appear all over the new cupboard doors and the glass table. But His resurrection remains the same yesterday today and tomorrow.
