IS GOD IS GOING TO BE GLORIFIED?

June 4

This is another section of Scripture in John 11:1-4 which we find to be so familiar to us, but as in all Bible Study we need to look deeper than the surface of what is going on here.  Lazarus is a man that Jesus loves, as He does all of His children, the ones who have trusted Him as Savior.  But he also loves the sisters Mary and Martha, yet he allows them to go through trouble because ultimately He will be glorified in the end.  That is why the Bible says we exist.  Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. One man put it this way, we exist to glorify God and praise Him forever.  How do we do this?  By first of all reverencing God and keeping His commandments.  Second we do this by becoming more like Him every day.  Romans 8:28-29, And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.  God is bringing us back to the place we were at in the Garden of Eden before man’s fall and our sinfulness dragged us down.  The only way God can do this is by allowing us to go through trials that make us more like Him.  So, have you looked at your situation and said that this is not something that is ultimately bad, but through it God is going to be glorified because I am trusting in Him and He will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5)

John 11:1-4 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. 3 Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” 4 When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
