We are finishing up our sermon series on the “Miracles of Jesus” by looking at the resurrection of Lazarus found in John 11:1-44. The message started with posing this question: “Does it bother you when God doesn’t do what you think He should do?” This is precisely what Mary and Martha were thinking and saying when Jesus finally arrived at the family emergency of their brother Lazarus’ death. Why doesn’t Jesus just drop everything He is doing here and rush over to see His friend? It’s true that Christ did not heal Lazarus like everyone was initially hoping for. However, He did something much greater. Christ performed one of the greatest miracles ever recorded in the Bible.
May we always remember that when God seems to be delaying or doing nothing, rest assured, He is doing more than you and I could ever imagine.
