Jesus asked Martha, one of his dearest friends, a key question in John 11:26 – “Do you believe this?” This is a powerful reminder that we can look good and sound good as believers, but faith is revealed when we trust Him in the hard times.
Let me ask you – Are you one of His followers or are you just part of His cheering section? Are you simply attracted to Jesus or are you committed to Jesus? As Paul said, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.” (2 Corinthians 13:5)
Take some time to read John 11:17-37 this week and prepare your heart to receive the message on Sunday!
