Does Jesus Procrastinate?

Rev. Dr. Jim Toole
John 11:17-27

“Does Jesus Procrastinate?”

Today we are finishing up our sermon series on miracles. We have been looking at the seven miracles of Jesus from the Gospel of John. Today we will be looking at Jesus resurrecting Lazarus from the dead.

As we end our series, I want to make three observations about miracles and the power of God.

First, God’s timing is not always our timing.

Second observation about miracles is that we need to open our eyes and hearts to the power of God in our lives.

The third observation about miracles is that God can do the possible out of the impossible.

The reason I wanted to do a sermon series on miracles is I believe many of us can grow stagnant in our faith. Our faith becomes dormant. We assume that all we know about God is all we will ever know. We assume all we have ever experienced about God we have already experienced. But when you add the power of God to our faith lives, all bets are off. Jesus continues to make things new every morning. Jesus is about resurrecting our lives. Rebirth is not just about salvation, rebirth is about a life with Christ where we let our everyday lives intersect with the power of God.


Where have you seen miracles in your life?

Where in your life now do you need to experience the power of God?
