“Irresistible” is a contagiously positive word. It describes something so good it’s impossible not to want. And irresistible is the only way to describe Jesus Christ and the life he offers.

This weekend we’re going to be studying one of the most well-known “I am” sayings of Jesus. Just before he performed the incredible miracle of raising his friend Lazarus from the dead, Jesus said, “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 die.” These are words we need to hear and take to heart as we struggle through the uncertainty of our current crisis.

Death is the ultimate enemy of every human being. It frightens us and steals our happiness by making us constantly paranoid. The miracle of Jesus raising Lazarus after having been dead four days is beyond human comprehension, but Christ’s return to life after his own death definitively confirms with solid evidence the claims he makes about himself and us.

With Jesus, physical death isn’t your greatest enemy. He transforms it into the door of his destiny for you – heaven. Right now, he is preparing that heaven for you. Knowing that, what alternative is there but to live the irresistible life right now?
