Live "the Eternal Life" (John 11:23-26)

Makoto Watabe, Vice-moderator

We had Easter worship on the 16th April. The story of the Lord Jesus who died on the cross despite innocence resurrected on the third day from the tomb is told us as a testimony of "the eternal life" in the scripture.

I couldn't understand enough "the eternal life" described in the Bible when I was young. I couldn't eliminate a question why Jesus, the son of God, couldn't go to heaven alive, why he died finally on the cross.

But as years went by, I came to understand that the Lord Jesus testified the existence of "the eternal life" that will make you live even though you die. And "the eternal life" means not only the resurrection after death but also the life that is given to those who believe that Jesus is the son of God.

In John 11:23-26, when Jesus says "your brother will rise again," Martha answers, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day." Then Jesus asks her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"

Our body surely dies. But Jesus, the Son of God, defeated the power of the body's death as "the eternal life." Through the life which will never die in this world, he gave us the way to live. Here, we find our way of faith for us who were given lives of flesh.
