The Lenten Journey 2015 – Believe

BroadnaxSt. John 11:30-45

There is an odor in the air. It is the pungent stench of dashed hopes, unfulfilled dreams, tries that failed, and untapped potential paralyzed for years by the doubts and fears of, what if! Although, we may have sought the Lord concerning these things, His delayed response and our impatience, prompted us to prematurely deem any further expenditure of time, energy and effort toward these things fruitless.

As we continue our Lenten inward journey with the objective of yielding outward results, let us not overlook the things within us that perhaps we have declared to be dead, that the Lord may yet want to resurrect. The Lord’s delay never meant His denial. With God, it’s not about time, but about timing! So, write the book; release the song; launch the ministry; start the business! Whatever the endeavor, it’s not too late, if you just believe!

In our text, Mary, Martha and the others experienced this first hand. Although, they had reconciled themselves with their brother Lazarus’ death, Jesus wanted them to witness the power of what can happen when one believes. In spite of their declaration of death, He ordered them to roll the stone away and reveal what death had concealed.

If we too, will roll the stone away and uncover what we have hidden away on the inside, Jesus says, I’ll call it forth to new life on the outside, if you just believe!
BELIEVE my friends, and be blessed!
