Christians know that Jesus is God in flesh.He has power over creation.He can defy nature at any moment. Because he is greater than anything and anyone.
Today’s biblical lesson from African Paradise World is from John 11 onwards. It is all about Lazarus’ sickness unto death.Jesus cried over his death because he really loved Lazarus.
Death is the most painful thing you could ever think of.If Jesus cried because of Lazarus’s death;then it shows how painful it is to lose a loved one.
Mary,whose sister was Lazarus sent a message to Jesus. This message was about Lazarus sickness. Jesus, being God knew everything under the sun.He knows what tomorrow brings:
” When Jesus heard [that], he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified” (John 11:4 ).
He glorifies his name through people. Although Jesus cried,but he never let that consume him.Faith in God can move mountains. There is nothing so hard for him to do.
If you are Christian and think everything is over; Then you are making a big mistake. With men,it is impossible.But with God,it is possible.
Jesus is our saviour from sickness,death and all our problems.Before he raised Lazarus from death. He said to Martha:
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live”( John 11:25).
In verse 35,it says Jesus cried(wept).Because he grieved Lazarus’s death.Lazurus died for 4 days but Jesus brought him back to life.
For people to believe that he is the son of God.Jesus cried with a loud voice.And he that was dead came forth.This brought joy to all those grieving in the house.
Jesus is the only one who can wipe your tears.Trust in him and you will have everlasting life.
