Notes from the Journey – 179

179. Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem (John 11:18).

Why does it take Jesus four days to travel two miles? Surely such a walk could have been managed in a day, even with the crowds. But God doesn’t always move at the speed limit. He often operates at a pace different than we would choose. Yet, as we will see in the story of Lazarus, His slower pace has an amazing purpose. He will arrive and Lazarus will live, but the path between today’s moment and the ultimate end of this story is likely the one we would have least expected.
