After talking with Jesus, Martha calls for her sister Mary. Mary tells Jesus the same thing that Martha told him. Jesus understood that both Martha and Mary were upset. He also knew that their faith needed to be increased. He stilled had compassion on them as can be seen in the fact that he wept with them. Martha had some faith, but was having problems with doubt, but, “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” (John 11:40). Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead were laid and Jesus prayed. Afterwards, “…he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go” (John 11:43-44). Jesus used the faith that she had, increased it, and performed a miracle that would increased the faith of Mary, the disciples, and all of that town.
Many times, we get upset or angry because we think that God is not doing anything. However, we do not know or see God’s plan. Sometimes God wants to use us as a witness for bigger and better things just as he did in here. Remember that Jesus is “the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” Hebrews 13:8.
Jesus will do for you what he has done for others.
