I feel that the Lord revealed much to me about the death and ultimate resurrection of His dear friend, Lazarus. We know when we read this story that Jesus, knowing that Lazarus was very ill, tarried two more days before he would go to Mary and Martha in their grief. Lazarus had already died.
The disciples were perplexed that their Master did not go quickly to his friends. He explained to them that the sickness was «for God’s glory, that God’s Son may be glorified through it» (John 11:4).
Jesus began His journey to Bethany, the home of Lararus. When Jesus told his disciples that His dear friend Lazarus was death, he also told them that Lazarus was merely sleeping, but that He was going there to wake him up.
I can just imagine the looks on the faces of the disciples after their Lord told them this!
