Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.…Do you believe this Martha?” (John 11:25-26 NLT). Look to whom Jesus asked this question: a bereaved, heartbroken sister. Look at where Jesus stood as he asked this question: a cemetery. Look at when Jesus asked this question: Lazarus, his friend, was four days buried.
Martha replied, “Yes, Lord…I have always believed you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who has come into the world from God” (John 11:27 NLT).
Martha wasn’t ready to say Jesus could raise the dead. Even so, she gave him a triple tribute: the Messiah, the Son of God, and the one who has come into the world. She mustered a mustard-seed confession. Her expression of belief was enough for Christ. Yours is too.
