The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Jesus has power over death! Sometimes with all that is going on in the world, we don’t take time to thank the Lord for what He has done. Jesus conquered sin, death, and the devil through His death on the cross and resurrection. He was victorious!

We begin a new life when we place our faith in Jesus as our Savior. This is possible because Jesus has power over death. Romans, 6:23For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. [1]

Jesus Called Jairus’ Daughter to Life

Jairus’ daughter was seriously ill and close to death. So Jairus fell at Jesus’ feet to ask Him to come and heal her. Tragically, while Jesus was on his way to heal her, they received news that she had died. This did not surprise Jesus; He told Jairus not to be afraid but to have faith. When they arrived at the home of Jairus, Jesus took Peter, James and John, and the parents into her room.

Mark 5:41 Holding her hand, he said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means “Little girl, get up!” 42 And the girl, who was twelve years old, immediately stood up and walked around! They were overwhelmed and totally amazed.[2] Jesus’ power over death was a foreshadowing of His resurrection.

What Happens After Death?

As you read this, you may be concerned about death. Death is not a pleasant topic to discuss, but there will come a time when all of us will die. The real question is: do you know Jesus as your Savior? When we have faith in Jesus as our Savior, we know He is always with us, especially when we pass from life to death. As a believer, your death will mark your first day in heaven, almost like being born. You will go from one world to the next, which is your heavenly home.

How wonderful will heaven be? 2 Corinthians 2:9No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. [3] What a wonderful verse to meditate on! People have great imaginations, yet we can’t begin to fathom all God has for us in eternity.

We Have a Home Waiting for Us

We read about the home the Lord is preparing for us.John 14: There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[4]We can look forward to eternal life because Jesus has promised all who place their faith in Him. We need not fear what is ahead.
