Jesus Calling

John 11:28. And when she had said this, Martha went and called her sister Mary, saying privately, “The Teacher is here and is asking for you.” 

Lazarus, Martha and Mary’s brother, had become critically ill.  The sisters sent word to Jesus to come quickly.   Lazarus died and was buried.  Four days later Jesus arrives.  Martha is at the gravesite with the mourners but Mary remains in their house grieving alone.  Jesus calls for Mary. Jesus is calling for each one of us to come.  We, like Mary, may think our pleas to God aren’t being heard or answered but God promised He would never leave us alone.  God knows when, where and what we need.  It is not for us to sit in self-pity wishing things were different.  Jesus is calling us to a faith of action.  Take time to read all of John 11.  Our question is will we trust God?
