Do You Believe This?
That was a question Jesus asked of Lazarus’ sister Martha not long before he brought Lazarus back from the dead. Jesus and Martha were carrying on a conversation about the resurrection. Jesus told Martha that her brother would rise again. Martha responded by saying “I know he will rise again in the “resurrection” on the last day.” Jesus then made one of his “I Am” statements, He said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who believes in me shall never die.”
Then comes the question, ‘Do you believe this?” Mary’s answer is exactly what Jesus wanted to hear from her and what He wants to hear from us. She said, “Yes, Lord: I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”
The question “Do you believe this,” is a question that everyone who ever walks the face of this third rock from the sun has to answer. Do you believe? During this Easter season ask yourself, have I answered that question like Mary did. If you have, your life will show it. Remember the song we used to sing:
“If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, if you’re happy and you know it, then your life will surely show it, if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands."
If you believe “this” your life will show it. Show it to someone today!
