Jesus said ‘Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God. ‘John 11:40

Jesus said this at the time of the death of Martha’s brother. I find it difficult to understand why Jesus delayed raising him from the death, but read that it was so we could believe.

In typical human fashion Martha had to find someone to blame. Jesus was the one who fell to her wrath because of His delay. As I ponder what this teaches us, I conclude it must be to have faith and therefore see the glory of God.
