Through the raising ofLazarus, Jesus showed thedisciples, and the world, thathe had power over death.Many believed that Jesuswas the Son of God and theyput their faith in him afterseeing this miracle.
Jesus revealed hiscompassion for peoplethrough a genuine displayof emotion. Even thoughhe knew that Lazaruswould live, he was stillmoved to weep with theones he loved.
He was not timid to showemotion and we shouldnot be ashamed toexpress our true feelingsto God. Like Martha andMary, we can betransparent with Godbecause he cares for us.
In conclusion, let usrealize that while theaccount of the raising ofLazarus is indeedmoving, Christ can andshall raise all the deadon the last day.

And shall come forth;they that have donegood, unto theresurrection of life; andthey that have doneevil, unto theresurrection ofdamnation"
