Morning Devo: John 11:1-44

“Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, ‘Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.’” – John 11:3

“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.” – John 11:5

“Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. And He said, ‘Where have you laid him?’ They said to him, ‘Lord, come and see.’ Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, ‘See how He loved him!’” John 11:33-36

This story touches my heart. It shows how Jesus loved the siblings Mary, Martha and Lazarus. It made me tell God I wish He loves me that way, too–that He will weep for me. There are many characters in the Bible who, after reading their stories, make me jealous because of God’s immense love for them. I find myself begging God to love me the same way and move in my life the same way.

However, as I was reflecting on it, I remembered how God the Father sacrificed His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for my salvation. He laid down His life for us on the cross. Knowing that pacifies my heart. To be reminded of God’s deep love for each and every one of us is so comforting.
