Live and Believe

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to [Martha], “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?”

Lives and believes in me.  Can we do one without the other?  Is it possible to believe in Him without living in His light?  And surely it isn’t possible at all to live in Him without believing.  Or perhaps He simply means those who believe while they are living, because everyone will believe after they die?

In any case, it is a reminder that we need to believe fully and completely, with our entire lives.  I cannot just pay lip service to my Jesus, but allow Him to inhabit my life, to live through me as I am in Him.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.
