Jesus and Lazarus
We all experience losses and struggles of all kinds. And we all have questions about why God did not answer our prayers to avoid those losses and alleviate our heartaches. But we must remember that our lives fit into a greater narrative which is being worked out upon the earth and that God is the author and director of it. The account of Jesus' raising Lazarus from the dead in John 11 gives us great insights into the answers to many of these questions we have and serves to renew our faith in One called Jesus Christ.
