ONE DAY WE WILL ALL SEE IT

Luke 7:11-17

Luk 7:11 Next, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him.
Luk 7:12 As he approached the town gate, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother (who was a widow), and a large crowd from the town was with her.
Luk 7:13 When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, “Do not cry.”
Luk 7:14 Then he came up and touched the casket, and those who carried it stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!”
Luk 7:15 So the dead man sat up and started speaking, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
Luk 7:16 Fear seized them all, and they began to glorify God; they said, “A great prophet has appeared among us!” and “God has come to help his people!”
Luk 7:17 This story about Jesus circulated throughout Judea and all the surrounding region.

crying at the casket

This poor woman had lost her husband, and now has to bury her only son. She meets Jesus on the worst day of her life, as she stands crying at the casket. The Father of us all looks down from the sky, and here identifies with this grieving widow. He gives his only Son the command to intervene, to restore joy for this woman’s sorrow, to restore life for this man’s death. Jesus had compassion for this woman, crying at the casket. All of us who mourn the loss of loved ones — who watch in disbelief as our families shrink before us — will one day see the miracle of Nain. Because Jesus is returning with compassion for all of us who are touched by this tragedy. A day is set when the Father’s command will bring the Son back to earth, so that all our sons and daughters can live again.

Thank you LORD, for the promise of resurrection day.
