The events surrounding Jesus’ return to Bethany point to precious gospel truths, while the people’s responses to Him help us to see ourselves in the storyline of His death.
A better understanding of Christ’s death and what it accomplished will strengthen your faith and secure your hope against the accusations and assaults of Satan.
If you are to receive the comfort that Christ holds out to you, you must learn to confess Him, gladly entrusting your whole life into His sovereign care.
Your eternal salvation, eternal security, and eternal felicity are all grounded in Christ and in the good news of His redemption.
Jesus clearly declared and displayed His identity, but many do not believe because they are not of His sheep and do not hear His voice, and they will perish.
Christ is your only doorway into God’s kingdom, your only Shepherd who knows you fully, and your only source of life and its abundance.11
