Genesis 21-24 and John 12-13
Abraham said to him, “See to it that you do not take my son back there.”
LORD, see to it that I do not take my sons back into sin.
In John 11:39, Martha tells Jesus that Lazarus has been dead four days. Where is he during that time? We often make the assumption that Lazarus was saved; how could he not be? If he was in heaven while in the tomb, why does Jesus weep? Of course He weeps in sympathy with Martha and Mary, but would He not have said something?
In Matthew 4, as Jesus is tempted, he faces three questions:
- Which is more satisfying: God, or our needs/wants/rights?
- If God has saved us, chosen us, and/or called us, why does it matter what we do?
- Worship God, or worship me?
