Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [4/8/19]

“This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” John 11:4b (NIV)

Passage: John 10:40-42; 11:1-7

This is the second time, recently, that we have read about something miraculously being done for the glory of God.  The first time was when we read about the man born blind.  One of Jesus’ disciples had asked who had sinned to cause this man to be blind, the blind man or the blind man’s parents.  Jesus said neither.  Instead, we learned that this had been done for God to be glorified through the work of His Son.  In the passage above, we read of Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha.  Lazarus died, but was raised to new life by Jesus.  The written of death of Lazarus and the blindness of the man born blind were both used by God to demonstrate His power to heal and raise people from the dead.  May we recognize the miracles performed by God in our everyday lives, as well as those we may experience through extraordinary events.  When we witness such miracles, may we remember to give all the praise and glory to God.  In addition, may we look for opportunities to proclaim God’s glory and to share the glorious hope we have found through Christ.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
