These Are Written - An Animation

"Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." -John 20:30-31 (ESV)

I've shared an animation from this artist before, and am posting another favorite. The video below is laden with meaning and imagery. I appreciate the point reiterated from the verse above, that all the stories collected in the book of John, and truly throughout Scripture, are given to His people so we can believe in Jesus and have life in Him.

The animator brings out the very specific case of believing and trusting the Lord through physical suffering, and I've found this video to be helpful, and certainly quite emotional, for friends experiencing just that. Having my own physical struggles for a number of years now, I am always struck by the wave of death which the Lord took for us on the cross, and the ultimate healing and restoration to come. I'm even more struck by the fact that we are safe in His arms through it all. Please watch.
