John 11:27 [Martha] said to him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.”
When we are faced with the impossible, we must prayerfully consider, “Why amid despair must our faith be jolted by signs and wonders?” Mary and Martha weep over the loss of their brother. In their grief, they forget about the redeeming power of Christ. Jesus reminds them that he is the resurrection and the life, that whoever lives and believes in him will never die—ever.
Today, this is our belief and deepest hope. Death does not ever have the final say. Yes, Lord. We believe.
