Faith

Good morning,

The scripture for today is John 11:40

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”

Jesus is saying this to Martha right before they open the tomb and he calls Lazarus from his grave.  Martha at this time doesn’t want the tomb opened because her brother has been dead for a number of days and he surely would have started to decay and smell.  So it seems that Jesus was going to do this even though she didn’t believe, but this would make her believe.  And I’m sure when Lazaus walked out they felt like they were seeing the glory of God.  There might have been just a little bit of faith in Martha’s heart that wanted to believe Jesus could do it, but she certainly didn’t show it.  Jesus wanted to show her that she could believe him.  Sometimes we need to have that faith.  It may not end up as it did for Martha, but deep down I believe Jesus will show you the glory of God so you know your faith is not in vain.

  1. Reminds me of Mark 9:24 “Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief.” I’ve prayed this many times. I know he can but doubts always try to crop up.
