John 11:25-26 NIV
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Sometimes one's own life even more than one's own interpretation of Scripture has to find it's way into these daily posts. Today is one such occasion. Last night, just after 11, my mother-in-law died. However, she died whilst believing in Jesus. Jesus has been her Lord and Saviour for longer than I have known her.
Re-read the passage again. How do you answer Jesus's question. To corrupt some words of Joshua, 'As for me and my family, we will answer, 'Yes.' We believe that Christobel Ida Marigold lives still. We believe she is with Jesus.
Lord Jesus, may your servant Marigold, rest in your peace and rise in your glory. Amen
