When Jesus said, “I am the Resurrection and the Life,” He clearly showed us to be source of both. There is no resurrection apart from Christ and there is no eternal life apart from Christ.
Beyond that, Jesus was also making a statement concerning His divine nature. In other words, He does more than give life; He created life and therefore has the ultimate power over death and thus He easily conquered death.
The significance of being concious of the resurrection of Christ is that we believe in what He has done for us, but more importantly we also share in the same triumph over death. (1 John 5:11-12)
As believers in Christ our knowledge of the resurrection power is very paramount especially when it means that; it is impossible to defeat us. (1 Corinthians 15:53-57), because Jesus is Life, we also can live eternally.
This is the foundation of our FAITH. The grave could not hold Him. He is the Resurrected Christ and gloriously the SameSpirit that raised Him from the dead lives in us and that is why we have life- and have it more ABUNDANTLY!
John 11:25 and Romans 8:11
