Growing Your Soul - Habits of the Heart

Growing Your Soul

She called Mary aside from the mourners and told her, “The Teacher is here and wants to see you.” So Mary immediately went to him. . . . When Mary arrived and saw Jesus, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

John 11:28-29, 32

Read this passage again. Imagine you are Mary and it is your own brother who has died.

You have been waiting for Jesus to help your brother, and now Jesus has finally arrived four days after his death.

When Jesus asks to speak with you, what do you want to say to him?

How does your response reveal how your heart handles seasons of waiting?
