"Do Not Weep. Arise!"

“Do Not Weep. Arise!”

Blessings folk!

Today’s reading:
Luke 7:11-17


What can one say?

Jesus was/is/will be victorious over death.

In this passage we see the Lord moved with compassion at the sight of a grieving widow mourning the death of her only son.

The son was dead.
Nothing could be done.
But, the compassion and power of the Lord…

He told her to weep not.
He touched the coffin...something a Jew would not do.
He commanded the young man to arise.
He did.

Note the reaction of the people.
Glorifying of God.

Let us glorify Him.
What might He do through us?
