Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 177

177. “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep” (John 11:11).

How does God view the death of those who love Him? He sees their moment of perceived tragedy as sweet as a glorious sleep from which He will awaken them. While the moment is naturally traumatic for Mary, Martha, and the host of friends that will gather near Lazarus’ tomb, Jesus fears no crisis. He knows that death isn’t the end of the child of God. Lazarus’ “condition” will change soon and the condition of all who trust in Him will change forever. What an incredible revelation. To this point, the disciples have seen Jesus’ mastery of everything in this world. They are about to see His control of even those things that are beyond.
