If you want to know God, you can because of Jesus. Jesus is making a way for us to know the father. If you want to know what God is like, look to Jesus.
This life has pain and evil and confusion and injustice. And we don’t get a free pass from it because we follow Jesus. But there is a promise, because Jesus didn’t just defeat death for Lazarus, he defeated it for all of us. Our problems don’t get the final say. Death doesn’t get the final say. He will make all things new again.
