When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.
Jesus leads out of despair and gives new courage.
- God has mercy on sinful human beings and wants to liberate them from death.
- Here and there people tell us that the end of the church is near.
- However, the Holy Spirit tells us: “Do not weep!” and “Arise!”
