John 11:25-26 ” Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?’ “

Martha’s theology had its fulfillment in the future…”I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” (John 11:24) But Jesus wanted Martha to have a deep, close, & personal intimacy with Him at that moment. So He asked the probing question, “Do you believe this?” Thus forcing Martha’s faith & trust to emerge into her own personal decision & inheritance…”Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ…” (John 11:27) There will be times in your own life when doubt will cloud your mind…when personal problems bring personal awareness of profound personal needs. Jesus will then drive home the same question about your own personal convictions – “Do you believe this?”
