Pleasant Stone Devotional Meditation: April 9

"... Whosoever lieth and believeth in me shall never die ..." ~ John 11:26a
ETERNAL life is eternal life. It is the very life of God Himself. "... I am the resurrection and the life ... I am the way, the truth and the life ..." Jesus did not say He would show us a better way of life.  He not a "way-shower" as the modern cult would have us believe.  He Himself, is the way.  He Himself, is the life.  That's why we can know that when Jesus walks up to a man or woman dead in sin, life inevitably results. If that person believes in Jesus as eternal life itself. Where He is, death cannot remain. Things and people spring to life around Jesus. It's inevitable.

 Any man or woman who believes in Jesus Christ simply cannot die. "... Whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." God's life. And He is eternal.  He goes on. So do we, if we have received His life into ours. We can no more stop than God can stop! Eternal life is everlasting life.  It lasts forever. Therefore, seeing all things as He does, and knowing all that was in His own heart when He created us and knowing all that He did for us when He redeemed us on the Cross, God would  know it to be an inferior thing for Him to raise a few people from their graves now. He Himself came up from His. The gift of eternal life has been given. Believers in Jesus Christ just don't die.

God continues working out His Purpose among our loved ones who have actually never even been in those graves we decorate. God would be retrogressing if He raised some now.  He has done much more than that. He has given us Himself and He is eternal life. We already know this if ---

" ... we trust in the living God who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe."
