“A man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany . . . ” (John 11:1)
These few words touched me this morning. They lead me to think . . .
A woman is sick, Bonnie of Windsor
A man needs a job, Joshua of Hamilton
A soldier is suffering, the son of Betty
A man has congestive heart disease, Keith of Sault Ste. Marie
John goes on to say that Jesus loved Lazarus and they were close friends. John wasn’t jealous. He named himself, “the disciple whom Jesus loved.”
Jesus’ love is so large that anyone who wants to can be His best friend. And best friends aren’t just faces in the crowd – they’re individuals who are personally and deeply loved. He sees our needs, hears our prayers and embraces us warmly.
He knows your name and address – Dina of Brantford – He grieves with you.
Jesus loves . . . . . (your name) . . . . . (your city) today.
Nothing has the power to change us like the love of Jesus.
A song to give this message a home in your heart.
