Sometimes ‘bad things’ happen so that we may see the powerful glory of God.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
John 11:15 - And for your sakes, I'm glad I wasn't there, for now you will really believe. Come, let's go see him."
Read - John 11:1–54
Jesus’ friend dies…so He brings him back to life. Wait, what? Yes, Jesus here shows his disciples (and us) that He has power over death. This is an important clue that should have empowered His disciples to trust that His resurrection would come after His crucifixion. But, it didn’t. When God does things we must extend our faith that He can do them again.
Lord, I give my mind and heart to You and ask you to give me faith.
You and I can be Mended in Christ because Jesus IS the Resurrection and Life. His power over death as shown in raising Lazarus was also shown in His own resurrection and can be shown in You if you repent of your sin and place your faith in Him as Lord and Savior. Be Mended today.
