Back from the
Long ago in the town of Bethany, a man name Lazarus lived with his two sisters, Mary and Martha. â€Śthey were close friends of Jesus.
Lazarus had become very sick, so his two sisters sent a message to Jesus, who was in another townâ€Ś
I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR YOU!
LORD, THE ONE YOU LOVE IS SICK!
Jesus loved Martha, Mary and Lazarus.
This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.
When Jesus heard that Lazarus was sick, he remained where he was for 2 more days. Then… Let’s go to Judea again. Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going there to wake him up.
Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.
Lazarus is dead, and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.
When Jesus arrived, he found Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.
Martha went to meet Jesus. Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.
Your brother will rise again.
I know he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.
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?
Yes, Lord. I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.
Then Mary came crying to Jesus and fell at his feetâ€Ś
Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 7
When Jesus saw her crying, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.
Where have you laid him?
Come and see, Lord.
See how he loved him!
Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man kept this man from dying?
Take away the stone!
But Lord, by this time there is a bad odor, for heâ€™s been there four days!
Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God? 10
Jesus prayedâ€Ś Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me...
LAZARUS, COME OUT! 11
Take off the grave clothes and let him go!
Many of the Jews who saw what Jesus did, put their faith in him.
How about YOU? Do YOU believe this? This is a TRUE event, written in the Bible (John 11). Just a little while later, Jesus gave his life and was killed on a cross to pay the penalty for your sins, because your sins separate you from God. (Rom. 3:23) On the third day, He rose to life again and lives today. Today Jesus says to you, “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” –John 5:24 If you BELIEVE in Jesus today, you will receive His forgiveness for your sins and He will give you eternal life!
