The Gospel Reading.
John 11 7-16
Jesus Said to his Disciples , “Let us go back to Judea.”
8“But Rabbi,” they said, “a short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you, and yet you are going back?”
9Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light.10 It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.”
11After he had said this, he went on to tell them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.”
12His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.” 13Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.
14So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead,15and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”
16Then Thomas said to the rest of the disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”
Poetry in Scripture
1The Lord says to my lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”
2The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying,
“Rule in the midst of your enemies!”
3Your troops will be willing
on your day of battle.
Arrayed in holy splendor,
your young men will come to you
like dew from the morning’s womb.
4The Lord has sworn
and will not change his mind:
“You are a priest forever,
in the order of Melchizedek.”
5The Lord is at your right hand;
he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
6He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead
and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.
7He will drink from a brook along the way,
and so he will lift his head high.
God's People Were Waiting for Rest in the Wilderness.
The Wait is Over...........

Waiting for a Ressurection.

Music of the Week: Martin Smith
[theme_button type="theme_button medium" link="http://www.relevantmagazine.com/the-drop/gods-great-dance-floor-step-02" window="_blank" ]Listen to Martin Smith's New Album Now![/theme_button]
After cresting the modern worship movement for not one but two decades, Delirious? chief Martin Smith is no stranger to the Christian music industry. But he wouldn’t call it that—and perhaps that is what has led to his music’s longstanding success. To Smith, worship is not an industry, but a future revival. And that, we learned in his conversation with us, is the sonic force behind his new solo album.
