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. Do you believe this, Martha?” “Yes, Lord,” she told him. “I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God.” John 11:25-27. This was part of the reading from the funeral service for His Royal Highness Duke of Edinburgh last weekend. Yet with all that he had there was no removal van following the hearse. I believe he knew that the only thing you could take with you was your relationship with Jesus. As the apostle Paul said,to be absent from the body is to be in the presence of God. With Jesus we have everything, eternal life and a future, without Him we have nothing. Thank Jesus today that as we place our hope and trust in Him, we’ll have an eternal future with Him.
