“When Jesus saw her weeping and the Jews who had come with her weeping, he became perturbed and deeply troubled, and said, “Where have you laid him?”They said to him, “Sir, come and see.” And Jesus wept. So the Jews said, “See how he loved him”.” (J 11:33-36).
“See how he loved him”. A very special relationship. Not a family, but friends. Connected by spirit. It is a real gift when we can be friends. Not because we are family members but because we are connected by something special.
Jesus invited us to be with Him as a friend. He has chosen us, because He would love to give us life, the eternal life. To be with us forever. We are so special in His eyes, so unique, so worthy. Even if we think that everything is gone, we are lost, empty, we are no longer worth anything – His friendship and love can bring us back to life. He cries out loud to everyone, as He called Lazarus from his grave: “come out”.
“I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord; whoever believes in me, will never die”. (Verse before the Gospel).
