Lazarus lives because of love:
Now Jesus LOVED Martha and her sister and Lazarus. John 11:5
So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you LOVE is sick.” John 11:3
Then the Jews said, “See how he LOVED him!”
Throughout this passage, we see how Jesus loved Lazarus and his family deeply. The atmosphere of love was abounding.
Jesus (love) showed up in the scene and overcame death. Love overcomes death. Death cannot hold love. Love can change any situation.
In the midst of doubting people, Jesus (love) was the only one who believed that Lazarus would live and indeed Lazarus came back to life.
Love believes in all things. 1 Cor 13:7
So we see that doubt or any other human weakness cannot hold Jesus (love) from having His way. Love covers and makes all things right. The word says that love covers all wrongs. All wrongs like doubt and unbelief were covered in this situation and love triumphed over death and Lazarus came back to life.
I want to encourage you today that because God loves you, you will triumph over that challenging situation. Love turns our weaknesses into strengths and we see the turnaround. God is faithful. God is love and love has come today to cause you to triumph. In love, there is always life. Love is the greatest. Love is the most excellent way.
Read John 11:1-44 and see and receive the power of love.
