healing death

If You had been here…

John 11: 1-7

“Lord, if you had been here my brother would not have died”. These were the words of grief-stricken Martha to Jesus when He arrived at her brother’s funeral. Perhaps Martha was annoyed at Jesus for not getting there sooner and doing something while there was still time, but little did she know that Jesus had everything under control.

The Lord told her: “I am the resurrection and the life”. Anybody could make that claim but Jesus showed His word to be true by bringing Lazarus back to life. This was not just a cheap trick or a publicity stunt, it was a sign from the Lord that “whoever believes in me will live, even though he dies”. We have eternal life only through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
