The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness.
John 12:17 (ESV)
Had God done great things on your behalf?
Don’t say, no.
You can’t say, no.
All you need to do is read through the Psalms.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly
I praise you for I am fearfully and
Wonderful are your works:
my soul knows it very well
If the crowds that had seen Jesus do great things had never continued to bear witness, to talk about what they had seen, the Pharisees would have had no reason to capture and kill Jesus. If Jesus hadn’t been crucified, he couldn’t have been raised from the dead. If Jesus had never been raised from the dead, we would not have eternal salvation.
Never take for granted the power of talking about what Jesus has done for you.
