In one of the most beloved scenes in the Bible—the death of Lazarus, a close friend of Jesus,—Jesus shows us his tender, emotional side as He grieves for his friend. But He also shows us His miraculous, powerful side when He defies the grave by raising Lazarus from the dead! And though Lazarus was only raised temporarily (he would die again later), it is a picture of how Jesus has the power over death and the grave. This is the reason Jesus said, “I AM the resurrection and the life.” For Believers, we have the assurance that there is life after death! Heaven is real, but so is Hell. And Heaven is open wide to all who would believe and receive Jesus as the resurrection and the life! You’ll be encouraged from today’s study as we examine three things about death and the assurance of Heaven in today’s study from John 11.

Isaac and Rebekah had twin boys named Jacob and Esau. Jacob tricked his brother and his father in order to become the leader of the family and receive Isaac’s blessing. Even though Jacob sinned, God still kept His promise that He originally gave to Abraham. God’s promises for Abraham and Isaac were for Jacob too. God showed Jacob in a dream that he would bless Jacob’s family and even a whole nation as a part of His plan to bring Jesus, the Saviour of the world.

Church is not cancelled! It just looks different. This is not the 2020 we had in mind. Navigating what church looks like during a pandemic has been a challenge but we find hope in seeking our faithful God and knowing that nothing can cancel the church.
Calvary, and all the people of God around the world, know that while we do not meet in our buildings, the Church is not cancelled. We will just worship differently from where we are until we can be back together again. And we will be back together again! I know that you’re facing disappointment, grief, and other difficulties in this season too but we’re in all this together and we at Calvary are here for you.
Here’s how: If you have any needs right now: physical, spiritual, material please do not hesitate to let us know. (Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org).
We haven’t stopped praying for you. Again if you have any prayer requests, please let us know.
What we shouldn’t do: Meet in-person. All our events, groups and gatherings are on pause as we practice loving our neighbours through staying at home. We shouldn’t panic. God is still on the throne and in control. As hard as it is to rest right now, we choose to remember this and rest in Him. Don’t waste this season. All of us have a huge opportunity to connect with people online, by phone and even old fashion letters and we can minister to one another even in lockdown.
May the Lord continue to bless you and minister to you.

The BIBLE is literally packed with practical insights on how to live a victorious Christian life. Our desire is to bring out the eternal truths and principles that are found in the Word of God each time we meet to study and we seek to provide teaching that will make a great supplement to your personal study through the Bible. We aim to provide teaching that is Spirit-filled, Christ exalting, Word centered and God glorifying. We want you to be edified, equipped and transformed by the Spirit as we study God’s Word together. Hope you can join us in the Sanctuary at Calvary Motherwell on Sundays at 11am and 6.30pm and on Thursdays at 7.30pm. You can of course watch online via the link here on the web site.
