Jesus Is #5 - THE RESURRECTION

SundayJesusRESURRECTION

Part#5 Jesus Is - THE RESURRECTION
Today we are continuing in the "Jesus Is" series.
In the book of John, there are 7 ways in which Jesus described himself:
The Way, Truth & Life
The True Vine

Today we are focusing on Jesus "The Resurrection"

Previously in this series we have learned that Jesus is The Bread of Life giving us sustenance for growth, and about Jesus the Light of the world, which will give us a vision for planning the future.  We have also learned that Jesus is the Door/Gate, which is God's guidance showing us the pathway ahead (urging us toward a certain decision);  as well as the Good Shepherd, protecting us as we follow Him.

Let's begin by defining:  
Resurrection - the act of restoring a dead person to life.  The condition of having been restored to life.

In the Scripture passage above we learn that our old self was crucified with Christ, which means that we have been set free from sin!  (our old self died and we have been resurrected to a new life in Jesus Christ).  Remember:
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."  Romans 6:23
We are united with Jesus Christ in resurrection - death no longer has mastery over us!

This resurrection through Jesus Christ is a guarantee of eternal life.
In the Bible verses below we learn that this "inheritance" of eternal life will NEVER:
Perish
(Perish - to disappear gradually)
Spoil
(Spoil - to impair or destroy the quality or value)
Fade
(Fade - to lose strength or vitality) 

The description in the final verse of the passage below is just wonderful - 
"God's power is protecting our inheritance in heaven until the last day!!"

Jesus is The Resurrection, which gives us a guarantee of eternal life!
