Bible Marginalia Series- #136
This was centering on the airplane
ride back home from a conference this week.
And one of the stories we know well-
the raising of Lazarus from the dead.
But, in all the years of HEARING it,
and thinking I knew the story,
I didn't LOOK for the small nuggets right here.
As Jesus talks to the people gathered-
He reassures them-
"If you believe- you will see the glory of God."
And the JEWS SAW
what Jesus did and many believed.
and He tells them because
they are all around and LISTENING-
"and the Father ALWAYS hears you!"
And so on the darkest day-
when Hope is gone,
and there is no way
that the good will come,
In THE END-
we will see His GLORY
and we are not ALONE here-
because He HEARS you- and me.
