How many times do you have to see something to believe it? How many stories do you have to hear to accept the facts? When something in life seems to be beyond comprehension what does it take for you to believe it? In the Gospel of John we see both the human side and the Godly side of Jesus…in chapter 11 there is the story of Jesus coming to where Lazarus the brother of Martha and Mary has been laid in a tomb. Lazarus has been dead for four days, starting at verse 35 and concluding at verse 44 Jesus shows all that He is…
“Jesus wept” – John 11:35
“When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” – John 11:43-44
There are many more stories throughout the bible that show the truth about who Jesus is and that God sent Him out of love to save us from our sins. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Son of Man, as He said…”I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me” – John 14:6…Do you believe it?
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
