Pastor Phil Yokers tells us, that not only does God have the power help us when we ask, he wants to. Jesus wept when he heard that Lazarus had died, then he raised him to life.
Reading: John 11:1-48
Martha said, “Master, if you’d been here, my brother wouldn’t have died. Even now, I know that whatever you ask God he will give you.”
Jesus said, “Your brother will be raised up.”
Martha replied, “I know that he will be raised up in the resurrection at the end of time.”
“You don’t have to wait for the End. I am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in me, even though he or she dies, will live. And everyone who lives believing in me does not ultimately die at all. Do you believe this?”John 21-26 (The Message)
