“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?’”
John 11:25-26

One question…one BIG question. What if it all boiled down to one question? Want to graduate college…answer one question. Want to get a great job… answer one question. Want to be rich, have a large house, have a great family…just answer one question.

Well, eternal life really does come down to one question…Do you believe? Jesus asks Martha, and she responds, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” This is Martha’s resurrection moment…the profession of her faith that secures her eternity in heaven.

I remember the moment that I answered the one big question in my college dorm room. I was tired of trying to find fulfillment on my own…in alcohol, performance, unhealthy relationships, and other misguided sources. I chose to believe and say, “yes, Jesus, you are the Son of God, you are my Savior, you died and were resurrected.” That forever created a turning point in my story.
