Beloved of the Lord,It is amazing how Martha the busy one of all Jesus’ friends never missed the opportunity to hear His voice and believe. Even in her sorrow she believed that He was the Messiah, the son of God and that she would see her brother again. There are so many in the church today, that have their mourning clothes on not grasping the fact that the Messiah is not only here to comfort but to give peace and assurance. Although we suffer the physical loss of loved ones, we will see them again. For all who love the Lord God and believe in Him shall live eternally.
May the God of mercy provide for those who have been mourning for years the same assurance and peace He provided Martha.
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again.” “Yes,” Martha said, “he will rise when everyone else rises, at the last day.” Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?” “Yes, Lord,” she told him. “I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God.””
John 11:23-27 NLT
