The Eternal Nature of Friendships
Topic: Friendship Passage: John 11:1–11:16
When Jesus heard that Lazarus was on his death bed, he delayed a few days and allowed that his friend would die. Jesus’s purpose was greater than just healing a friend. Jesus wanted to reveal the Father’s purpose for his life. In addition, Jesus was letting his friends know that his eternal friendship with Lazarus was more important to him than Lazarus physical life or death.
