We know that when we're sick or sorrowing or passing through life's difficult trials, we should give our burdens to Jesus. But do you ever wonder just what these difficulties in your life mean to Him? The Gospel of John provides us with a detailed picture of how Jesus ministered to some very special people in His life as they faced sickness and death. And as we examine Jesus' response to the sorrows of His friends Mary and Martha, we can begin to see how Jesus can meet our needs as well.
