A bad smell: John 11.39

“Jesus said, ‘Take away the stone.’ Martha, the sister of the deceased, replied, ‘Lord, by this time the body will have a bad smell, because he has been buried four days.'”

John 11.39

Ever the practical one, Martha thinks of what is, not what can be. She has no idea of Jesus’ intent. She deals with a dead body; he plans to revive.

Am I so caught up in the problem of the hour or the reality of the moment that I cannot see what God desires to do in me and through me?
