SS LESSON - The Gospel Project

Jesus Raises Lazarus. John 11

Point 1: Jesus has Authority over the Curse of Death.

Point 2: Jesus Grieves the Curse of Death.

Point 3: Jesus Undoes the Curse of Death.

The shortest verse in the Holy Bible, "Jesus wept." John 11:35

And "the Jews said, 'See how He loved him.' "

Why do you think, Jesus wept? He knew He came to Raise Lazarus and to demonstrate the Power and Glory of God!

Have you ever wept over sin? The consequences of sin? The burned down lives of sinners and their loved ones? Including the missed opportunities? Just as I am studying this lesson and posting, I received and instant message asking for prayer for a family. A mom and dad were killed by a young man, who they had contacted to purchase a car from. Leaving children motherless and fatherless.

"Jesus wept."

My prayer: to be grieved by sin, the "big" and the "small". For motivation to:

-put on His Armor, Ephesians 6:10+

-go into Battle, 2 Corinthians 10: 3-6

-be a Child of Light, Ephesians 4: 17-24

John 11, does stop with Christ Weeping!

Christ raises Lazarus from the dead. Calling him out of the tomb, and commanding the grave clothes and face covering be removed and Lazarus freed!

Just as Jesus brought Lazarus out of death to life; by His Own Death and Resurrection He has brought us to LIFE! Those who believe in Him shall have LIFE.

We are Eternal Beings: Eternal LIFE is being in the Presence of God. Eternal DEATH is separation from God.

We each must choose for ourselves. John 3
