Have you ever worried when someone in your family was sick? Jesus’s friends Mary and Martha worried because their brother, Lazarus, was very sick. They sent someone to tell Jesus so He could come heal Lazarus. But Lazarus died before Jesus got there.
When Jesus saw how sad Mary and Martha were, He cried for them. Then He asked someone to move the stone from the door of the tomb, and He commanded Lazarus to come out. Lazarus’s spirit came back into his body, and he walked out of the tomb, still wearing burial clothes. People were amazed. Jesus had power over death! He truly was the Son of God!
Each of Jesus’s miracles showed His great love and His great power. If we believe in Him and follow His example, we will live with Him again!
