Jesus loved . . . Lazarus. Yet when He heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where He was two more days (John 14: 5-6). The Lord is teaching us here: at the heart of all His dealings with us is His infinite love, no matter how strange it may be. Dare to believe it even though His love allows trials to mature us into His likeness.
Thank you Lord for your infinite and everlasting love.
