A Daily Devotion for Weds, November 25


John 11:17-44


I love this passage from the book of John. It evokes so many thoughts and feelings in me. I am reminded of Mary’s devotion to Jesus when she poured the oil and wiped Jesus’ feet with her hair. And Jesus being fully man and fully divine as He wept. And Jesus praying aloud to the Father for the benefit of those around to hear his words. I am thankful for all of these messages. I am most thankful for Jesus, his love for us, his sacrifice, and his steadfast presence. He is here for us always, in every circumstance, in every hardship. We can look to Him with confidence. Thanks be to God. Amen

John 11:17 - “ When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days.”


Jerusalem was said to be two miles from Bethany. Jesus could have walked there inside of an hour, but He waited four days. The message He wanted to convey was huge. Instead of bringing all who saw it, knew of it or were simply told it occurred to a saving knowledge of the One who stood with them, some still rejected Him. In fact, the church authorities saw this as the final straw to justify pursuing Jesus’ death. The human condition seems at times beyond redemption, yet here we are, saved by amazing grace through faith.


Prayer - Thank You, Lord…

John 11:17-44 There are so many lessons given to us through this story. What strikes me most, today, is the range of emotions we see Jesus showing us. We see compassion, indignation, sorrow, and a little frustration. How very human of him. At this point in his ministry he is fully human and fully divine, especially in his miraculous actions. Knowing he understands these emotions, we should never be afraid to show them ourselves as he will understand. At this moment, he understands our own frustration with the pandemic, our sorrow and anger about how it has changed our lives. Knowing this, do not be afraid to share these feeling with him, knowing that he understands and can offer comfort. Prayer: …

John 11: 17-44


25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”


Believing. That is the key to our eternal life with Jesus. Death and taxes are a reality. Believing that there is life after death is our faith in what Jesus has taught us. I believe that death is not the end of life, it is a beginning of life with Jesus. We can enjoy a part of that eternal life as we learn about God in our Bible study now. We can look with hope through our earthly…

20201125 Wednesday, Daily Devotion - John 11:25-27 (NIV)


25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”


I love this part (although I have tons of my favorite parts) “The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die” The first meaning of my Korean name my mother intended was ‘Sign of Victory’ and she…
