When Jesus Disappoints Us

by Jonathan Bailey

I have the opportunity to speak at Four Corners Church on Sunday August 31. There will be two services one at 9 am and the other at 10:45 am. I will be speaking on “When Jesus Disappoints Us.”

“1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 It was the Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. 3 So the sisters sent word to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” 4 But 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.” 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 So when He heard that he was sick, He then stayed two days longer in the place where He was.”

Why did Jesus delay? Did Jesus heal Lazarus when he heard that he was sick? Why did Mary & Martha have to go through this painful event? Hopefully we will be able to answer these questions and more. I hope to see you there.
