I raed this quote this morning as our pastor was preaching from John 11 on the "Raising of Lazarus." I read this verse and - no kidding - it was as if I had never read it before. I post it here for your reading and meditation and hopefully it will stimulate your thinking. I am not ready to post my idea as to what I think it means, so I will study it and post it shortly...

John 11:39-40 39 Jesus said, "Remove the stone." Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, "Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days." 40 Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?"

What does it mean when Jesus said to Martha, "you will see the glory of God?"

That is a great question. In the immediate context, I always assumed it refered to the glorification of Christ that would be revealed moments later as He raised Lazerus from the dead (John 11:4b). But, I guess this could have broader implications.

I am anxious to read your thoughts later!

Love Ya,
