. . . . THAT THE SON OF GOD MIGHT BE GLORIFIED . . .

The Lord Jesus Christ said of Lazarus in John 11:4. "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby."

Approximately eight weeks ago our church claimed this verse for our pastor, who had sustained a hip fracture. There were complications after surgery and for a while things were touch and go. Still, we held firm to God's promise. Today, Brother Billy walked into the sanctuary for the first time since his accident. He still has a ways to to before he'll be strong enough to stand behind the pulpit to preach, but he's able to be back in God's house.

. . . that the son of God might be glorified. . . !

Blessings!

Whoo-Hoo! (Not necessarily a biblical term, but I think it's appropriate...)

Grace, I think I recall Whoo-Hoo! being either Greek or Hebrew, so you're right on!

Blessings!
