Faith, The Lifestyle of Saints
Can You Believe? The question that Christ asked Martha is a defining one, do you believe that you will never die if you believe in me. Jesus said "I am…" the fullness of Life is embraced in this declaration what is reverberated in Exodus 3:14 to Revelations 1:17.
The Resurrection and the Life are for those who walk in Faith for the Resurrection is only in Christ Jesus and the Life what we live in the flesh is by works by Faith. The works of Faith are the production of the Fruit of the Spirit. The Fruits of the Spirit provide the energy to do what is demanded of us who are obedient to the Will of God. So when the question of belief is posed by Jesus to Martha the sister of Lazarus the proposition leads us to the purpose of Faith-- to have the capacity to believe in an Almighty and omnipotent God through Jesus Christ.
John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Lord, Master and Relational God, Jehovah (Genesis 2:4); we thank You for the statement of God as Jesus Christ in the I Am. We praise You for the substance of Your Glory which though we were dead, yet shall we live. We decree and declare blessings upon those who by Faith sustain belief for the Resurrection and the Life so that; by our belief that the Fruits of the Spirit will fuel our energy for the eternal Kingdom of God. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
