The One Who Waits

The One Who Waits

When Lazarus fell ill, Mary and Martha, never doubted that Jesus would come quickly to help them.  They knew how much he loved them (John 11:5).  And yet, the Bible reveals, that when Jesus heard that Lazarus was ill, he waited two more days.  Wait!  What!  Yes, you heard it right.  “Yet, when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.”  You have to wonder; didn’t Jesus love them?  Didn’t he care?
