Why Don’t They Believe?

This Sunday in our series (verse-by-verse study) in the gospel of John; we are in chapter 11, looking now at verses 18-44; which is the center of this major miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead.  But what is most important?  The miracle of raising a man that has been dead 4 days?  Well that is certainly very significant, but I think there is a whole lot going on here.  And therein is the question, “will people believe”?  Jesus is not only powerful enough to raise one dead man, but also powerful enough to be “the resurrection and the life”!  Do they (Mary, Martha, the crowd) believe that He is the originator of all life and thereby has the power over all life (begin, end & middle)?  God is Sovereign over all life.  Do you believe that?  Do you live that way?  More on this as we look “beyond the miracle” this Sunday morning…

See you Sunday,

Pastor Weaver
