Jesus Is God’s answer to man’s disappointments.
Jesus Is God’s answer to man’s
Jesus is the answer to man’s disability.
4But when Jesus heard [this], He said, “This sickness is not to end in death, but for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.” 5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6So when He heard that he was sick, He then stayed two days [longer] in the place where He was.
He was on a divine timetable
John 11:9 - Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.”
John 2:4 - And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come.”
John 7:6 - So Jesus said to them, “My time is not yet here, but your time is always opportune.”
John 7:8 - “Go up to the feast yourselves; I do not go up to this feast because My time has not yet fully come.”
John 7:30 - So they were seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.
John 8:20 - These words He spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one seized Him, because His hour had not yet come.
John 12:23 - And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.”
John 13:1 - Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You.”(John 17:1)
and I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe; but let us go to him.(John 11:15)
