LARGE PRINT EDITION.
We have all needed comfort at some time in our lives. People search for comfort in all sorts of places, from the empty psychobabble of the self-help book to the oblivion of alcoholism. The only completely satisfying source of comfort is found in the Bible - and, more particularly, knowing Jesus as a friend. This is shown in the story of the death of Lazarus. Jesus comforted Lazarus' sisters, Mary and Martha, weeping with them, before going on to raise Lazarus back to life after four days in the grave.
Robert Murray McCheyne, one of Scotland's greatest preachers who saw great revival in his less than 30 years of life, looks at this wonderful passage, offering us tremendous encouragement and pointing us to the one true source of comfort - Jesus.
Robert Murray McCheyne (1813 - 1843), has had a tremendous impact not only on the people of his generation but through his writings ever since. He died in his thirtieth year and in the seventh year of ministry while he was the pastor of St Peter's Free Church. His epitaph describes him as a man who 'was honoured by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness into the path of life'.
