I am the resurrection and the life (5)

I am the resurrection and the life (5)

"Marthe tells him: I know that he will resuscitate in the resurrection, in the last day. Jesus declared to him: I am the resurrection and the life: the one who believes in me, even if he dies, will live; and whoever lives and believes in me, will not die, for ever. Do you believe it?" Jean 11:24-26

      Lazare, the friend of Jesus, died for more than four days. And each thinks: if Jesus had arrived earlier, he would have been able to cure him. While there's life, there's hope, but the life is not any more there! "Your brother will resuscitate", asserts nevertheless Jesus to Marthe, the sister of Lazare. This one considers good in a resurrection in the end of time, but Jesus reveals him that it is himself the resurrection and the life. He is going, by his own resurrection, to gain a victory on the death. The prophet says that it was not possible that he is held by the death (Acts 2:24).

      Jesus thus announces to Marthe the real meaning of the miracle which he is going to carry out by resuscitating his brother: he announces his victory on the death. "Do you Believe it?" He asks him. Marthe answers: "yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God" (Jean 11:27). His pain remains lively, but it trusts the One the wisdom, the power and love of which it knows. While the death is still present, she receives the promise of Jesus, not only to get back his brother in the life, but to give the eternal life to all those who believe in him.

      What mean these verses for us today? They are very comforting because they assure us that the believers who die will resuscitate to be with him. The one who believes possesses from now on this new life, who is not only an endless life, but also a life in eternal relation with Jesus, him who liked me in the point of supporter to my place the judgment which deserved my sins.
