Fifth Sunday of Lent

I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will never die.

John 11:25-26

Isn’t this a wonderful thought? We are already saved. Eternal life is already ours. Jesus won that for us with his suffering on the cross and his resurrection. God does not ask us to be perfect. He asks us to believe. To believe in our hearts that we are loved, that no matter what we do His love will never go away, and that each of us has a spot reserved in His Kingdom.

Spend some quiet time today thanking God for His mercy and His unending love.
