In the story of Lazarus, Martha tells the Lord he is too late and her brother has already died. Christ reassures her that her brother will rise again. She replies, ®I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.® With perfect clarity he declares, ®I am the resurrection.® – John 11
For most of us the thought of death is far distant, but for those whose trials come through physical illness and disability the reminders of mortality are not easily ignored. For them, and for my son, I pray the Savior will come quickly and bring the promised resurrection and an end to their pain.
