Thanks to Father Justin Udomah for the powerful Resurrection message. Brief excerpt below:
"I AM the Resurrection and the Life!"
Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in Me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in Me and believes in Me will never ever die..." John 11:25-26
Jesus, the Son of God, came to manifest Who He is and has always been – Resurrection and Life! Jesus did not come to earth to teach about a theory; He was and is forever the Resurrection Life for everyone who receives Him. Resurrection Life is about our surrender to the Son of God and His call for us to be His witnesses everywhere and with everyone. Surrendering to His resurrected life living through our born-again lives.
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11
Resurrection and Life is the Spirit deposit from the Father to all those who receive Jesus' gift of eternal life. When we received Jesus, we began carrying the "Resurrection Life" guarantee for everyone on the earth needing "Resurrection" everlasting life.
Father Justin, your story about the three selfish men who found the treasure and its illustration that selfishness always brings death is still ministering to me.
Thank you Blanco’s Hall of Fame Cowboy Lawrence Coffee, from Mt. Horeb Baptist Church, for your sacrifice to serve the least among us, our children. Lawrence, all your work was worth the expression on 4-year-old Miles Kennedy’s face when his rope caught the calf!
