When Jesus received word that one of his best friends was sick he lingered several extra days before responding. Jesus’ early followers were concerned for their friend and wanted Jesus to heal Lazarus as he had healed others. Lazarus’ sister, Martha met Jesus outside of Bethany to let him know that Lazarus had died. Martha cried out in faith that if Jesus had been in Bethany, Lazarus would surely not have died. To comfort Martha, Jesus tells her that one day she will see her brother again. Little does Martha know that very soon she will see her brother raised from the dead as a sign that Jesus is the resurrection and life.
During the message, Jonas referenced the song “What a Day It Will Be” by Greg Ferguson. Click here to view it in iTunes.
