I was struck when reading this story about Lazurus. Jesus said that Lazarus has died so that God could be glorified. What does it mean to glorify God? its a saying we use a lot in Church. I have been realising lately that the Gospel of John paints a picture that the glory of God is in fact the Revelation of God. In other words God is glorified when we get a revelation about him. The funeral mourner certainly received a radical revelation about who God was when they saw Lazurus came out of the grave. Can you imagine their faces! It makes me wonder if my life is glorifying to God? Is my life being used, seeking out revelations about God both for myself and the people around me.
