How long had Lazarus been dead before being risen by Jesus?- BIBLE QUIZ


How long had Lazarus been dead before being risen by Jesus?

ANSWER : 4 days
Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, “Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for he has been dead four days.” - John 11:39

ENCOURAGING WORD:
Learn to Linger
How busy are you? Do you have days when you feel you can barely "keep your head above water"? How has the busyness affected your personal relationship with God? Have you put your time with Him on the back burner-something to take care of when you get a chance? Or are you neglecting that quiet time altogether?


During one of Jesus' visits to the home of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus, Mary lingered at the feet of Jesus while Martha worked frantically in the kitchen, trying to prepare a meal that was just right. She complained to Jesus that Mary wasn't helping her and urged Him to send Mary into the kitchen to help. Here is how Jesus responded:

But the Lord said to her, "My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her." - Luke 10:41-42 NLT.

Martha was letting the details of doing everything just right control her. Mary had learned to linger at the feet of Jesus.

Learn to linger!

Prayer : Our Loving Father, I know I've been neglecting my quiet time with you. I realize now that the more I have neglected You, the more I've let the busy details of everyday living control me. My priorities have been out of order, and I have become more and more frustrated. Please forgive me and help me learn to linger before You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."
