Jesus raises Lazarus to life

The miracle of Lazarus raised from the grave.
This story is about Jesus who understands our hurts and is able to heal the broken-hearted. It is also about two sisters, Mary and Martha, and their brother Lazarus. – Slide 1
Lazarus became very sick. His sisters Mary and Martha knew Jesus could heal Lazarus. They sent for Him to come to their village. Jesus loved Mary, Martha and Lazarus, but He did not hurry to them. Instead, He waited where He was and Lazarus died. Jesus wanted to show His great power over life and death. – Slide 2
Four days after Lazarus died Jesus went to see the two sisters. Martha heard Jesus was coming and ran to meet Him. <br/>Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies.’ <br/>Martha believed Jesus’ words. – Slide 3
Mary also heard Jesus was coming and ran to meet Him. She fell at the feet of Jesus. When Jesus saw Mary weeping He wept with her. – Slide 4
Jesus asked to go to the tomb of Lazarus and roll back the stone covering the entrance. <br/>The sisters hesitated, saying, ‘Lord, after four days he will stink!’ <br/>Jesus answered, ‘If you believe you will see the glory of God!’ – Slide 5
Jesus stood by the tomb and cried out with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ <br/>Though Lazarus had died, he came to life and walked out of his own tomb! <br/>Many believed in Jesus when they saw the power He had to heal even the dead! – Slide 6
When Lazarus died, Jesus came to comfort and help Martha. Jesus comes to us in the midst of our hurts too. He loves us and is able to heal our broken hearts. <br/>‘He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.’ Psalm 147:3 – Slide 7
