Our DAILY GOSPEL DEVOTIONAL is the story of Jesus from Incarnation to Ascension. This is a chronology and harmony of the gospel accounts in which the ongoing narrative and doctrinal context are carefully considered. In one year we reflect on every passage of every gospel.
May God bless you as we follow the disciples on the journey through the earthly life of Jesus Christ.

Jesus waits


John 11:1-16…

So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. How curious and counterintuitive this seems. That is, until we understand the grand plan of God. It is often this way in our own little world. We are waiting on Jesus, but He is waiting on His own perfect timing. His timing is worth waiting for. He wants is deliberbatenessto turn our worry into worship.

The disciples said to him, “Rabbi, the Jews were just now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?” Even after we understand where Jesus is going with all this, we may still doubt His direction. But when we are walking by His light, God’s purpose in us and through us will be fulfilled. His direction is worth following. He wants to turn our fear into faith.

I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. The plain purpose of Jesus in His waiting and His direction are for our benefit. We might at times be thinking, “Where are you?” and “Where are we going?” Still, and as always, He knows what He is doing. His purpose is to perfect us. He wants to turn our suspicion into submission.

Jesus is waiting...for you.
