Never Ever Die

25 Jesus said to her, “I am (A) the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me, (B) even if he dies, will live. (C) 26 Everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die—ever. (D) Do you believe this?”

John 11:25-26 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Undying One

Jesus was Crucified for our sins and he Died so that we could find eternal life in Him. He died to take our just and most deserved punishment so that we could come to Him and gain eternal life.

Gift of Eternity

This eternal life isn’t something that we eventually acquire it is something that we get as soon as we repent and accept the gift of eternal life, from God, through the death of His son.

This eternal life lasts forever, it is our spirit that lasts forever, our spirit is where our true identity lies. Our identity in Christ is through our Spirit and the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit, working together to seal us for Heaven.

In fact for the Christian who dies we die to our mortal life and take our first breath of our spiritual life the very next moment.

You can be an undying one too.

In the verses the original reading of the last few words is Never No Never die.

It doesn’t get much more emphatic than that.

In Christ,

Ross
