John 11

David Van Drunen

John 11

  1. Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
  1. When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.”
  1. So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead,
  2. and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”
  1. On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.

John 11

  1. “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
  1. Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;
  2. and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

John 11

  1. “Where have you laid him?” he asked.
    “Come and see, Lord,” they replied.
  2. Jesus wept.
  3. Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”
  1. So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.
  2. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

John 11

  1. When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”
  2. The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
    Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
  3. Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, put their faith in him.
  4. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.

Key Points:

  1. God loves us so much that he will let us die.
  2. God does care about our suffering and will use it for good.









Genesis 32:24-32


Genesis 32:24-32

  1. So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.
  2. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.

Genesis 32:24-32

  1. Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”
    But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”
  2. The man asked him, “What is your name?”
    “Jacob,” he answered.
  3. Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome.”
  4. Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.”
    But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there.

Genesis 32:24-32

  1. So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.”
  2. The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, and he was limping because of his hip.
  3. Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob’s hip was touched near the tendon.

Psalm 131

Rob Garlington

Psalm 131

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
  1. My heart is not proud, Lord,
          my eyes are not haughty;
    I do not concern myself with great matters
          or things too wonderful for me.
  2. But I have calmed and quieted myself,
          I am like a weaned child with its mother;
                like a weaned child I am content.
  3. Israel, put your hope in the Lord
          both now and forevermore.

Phil 4:10-13

  1. I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me.
    Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.
  2. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
  3. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.
    I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
  4. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
