To See the Glory of God (John 11:28-44)

Sermons JohnOn Sunday, November 29, 2015, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “To See the Glory of God” from John 11:28-44.

Just as Jesus had the power to raise Lazarus from the dead and unbind him from his grave clothes, so he has power to raise us from spiritual death and unbind us from slavery to sin.

1. “Deeply Moved,” or Indignant?—Jesus was angry both at the enemy that death itself is, and by the fact that so many chose to remain ignorant that he is the God-sent remedy to death.

2. Jesus Wept—In his full humanity, Jesus shed tears for Lazarus, and for the disbelief on display around him.

3. That They Might Believe—In his full deity, Jesus commanded Lazarus to come out, raising him physically, signifying our spiritual resurrection and foretelling our future bodily resurrection, yet contrasting it with that of the Lord Jesus.
