Friday Verse Journal John 11:25

Even though this is two days late, I am still posting it in m y Friday Verse Journal. Right now, I am reading through the gospel of John and recently was led to this verse. As i push my way through daily toils, trials, and occasional disappointments, I was reminded to focus on the hope of heaven and the new life we will have there. Earthly hopes and dreams are temporary and have a way of disappearing. When I find that something that I have so longed for just isn’t going to happen, I am overcome with a sense of heavy disappointment. While reading John 11, I was reminded to focus instead of the permanent hope we have in Jesus, Furthermore, I heard a sermon last night in which i was reminded that for those who believe in Jesus, that death is not the final chapter in life. Instead, death is a doorway, a passage into a new life.

John 11:25 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me though he dies, yet shall he live.”
