Scripture: John 11
Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
Jesus wanted Martha to believe in Him BEFORE she saw Lazarus resurrected from death.
Believing is seeing.
She still wasn’t sure but He was there to reassure her:
Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”John 11:40
He wants us to believe. He wants us to see.
He, of course, never doubted God’s power to raise the dead. (He is God Himself afterall.) But He prayed to His Father:
“Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me.”
Jesus came to raise us all to new life. Believe and see.
