John: I Am the Resurrection & the Life

John 11:1-57

Probably more than any other day of the year, Americans visit cemeteries across our land on Memorial Day. We do that to honor those who gave their lives in the defense of our country. You know what? It’s good to visit a cemetery. It’s good for each of us to look at the grave markers and reflect on the fact that one day there will be a grave marker with our name on it. Every one of us will die some day. So, as Christians, how am I to think about death? This Sunday at CCC, we’re going to see in John 11 one of the most amazingly encouraging pronouncements ever heard by human ears. Jesus said, “I Am the Resurrection and the Life.” Now there’s power! There’s hope!
