The events that accompany Jesus’ proclamation that He is the resurrection and the life are even more crucial in helping us to make some practical applications for our own lives.

1. Only Jesus can clean up the ‘stink’ in my life
2. Jesus’ ability to work in my life is not limited by my circumstances or my doubts
3. Jesus often calls us to be His co – labourer when He works in the lives of His people

Although it is true that as the resurrection and the life; Jesus has overcome death for those who live and believe in Him, none of us will ever pass from death to life by going to church, being religious, following some set of rules or by our own good works.
