John Chapter 11 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus from Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister, Martha.
  • 2 It was that Mary who had anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother, Lazarus, was sick.
  • 3 The sisters therefore sent to him, saying, "Lord, behold, he for whom you have great affection is sick."
  • 4 But when Jesus heard it, he said, "This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that God's Son may be glorified by it."
  • 5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
  • 6 When therefore he heard that he was sick, he stayed two days in the place where he was.
  • 7 Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let's go into Judea again."
  • 8 The disciples told him, "Rabbi, the Jews were just trying to stone you, and are you going there again?"
  • 9 Jesus answered, "Aren't there twelve hours of daylight? If a man walks in the day, he doesn't stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
  • 10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light isn't in him."

  • 1 Now a man named Lazarus, of Bethany, was lying ill; he belonged to the same village as Mary and her sister Martha.
  • 2 This Mary, whose brother Lazarus was ill, was the Mary who anointed the Master with perfume, and wiped his feet with her hair.
  • 3 The sisters, therefore, sent this message to Jesus – ‘Master, your friend is ill’;
  • 4 and, when Jesus heard it, he said, “This illness is not to end in death, but is to redound to the honor of God, in order that the Son of God may be honored through it.”
  • 5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister, and Lazarus.
  • 6 Yet, when he heard of the illness of Lazarus, he still stayed two days in the place where he was.
  • 7 Then, after that, he said to his disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.”
  • 8 “Rabbi,” they replied, “the authorities there were but just now seeking to stone you; and are you going there again?”
  • 9 “Are not there twelve hours in the day?” answered Jesus. “If someone walks about in the daytime, they don’t stumble, because they can see the light of the sun;
  • 10 but, if they walk about at night, they stumble, because they have not the light.”

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
