The reason why
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. - John 11 v 4
Some might ask, Why, then, was Lazarus sick? The reason: 'For the glory of God.' Christ was thereby in an eminent manner made known.
First, His amazing love to His own was seen, when He wept at the grave. Second, His power to raise the dead. He was shown to be the
Resurrection and the Life when He cried, 'Lazarus, come forth.'
Christ was far more glorified than if Lazarus had not been sick and died. So in all sufferings of God's people. Sometimes a child of God says: Lord,
what wilt Thou have me to do? I will teach, preach, do great things for Thee. Sometimes the answer is, Thou shalt suffer for my sake.
It shows the power of Christ's blood, when it gives peace in an hour of trouble, when it can make happy in sickness, poverty, persecution and death.
Do not be surprised if you suffer, but glorify God.
It brings out graces that cannot be seen in a time of health. It is the treading of the grapes that brings out the sweet juices of the vine; so it is
affliction that draws forth submission, weanedness from the world, and complete rest in God. Use afflictions while you have them.
