Bible Story:

John 11:1-44

God is more powerful than anything, including death. We are all spiritually dead and God gives us new life through Jesus Christ. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead as a sign of what His death on the cross does for every person who believes in Him.



Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
