Romans 6:5 says, “We will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like His.” Do you believe this promise? Do you believe that Jesus is the resurrection and the life? Jesus’ question to Martha is his question to you. You see, death is the great equalizer. What do the billionaire and the peasant have in common? Both will die; we all will. But not all will face death in the same manner. Let the story of the resurrected Lazarus remind you: Jesus’ authority extends over even the cemetery.

Do you believe this? The question is personal. What’s more, it’s precise. Do you believe this? This claim Christ makes about his deity and about your destiny? Jesus is Lord over the cemetery. His voice can empty a grave, and you are designed for a Lazarus moment. Do you believe this? Remember, my friend, you are never alone.
