“Lazarus, come forth!” (John 11:43 NKJV).


The One who had said, “Let there be light,” now entered into His fallen creation, speaking resurrection life to those dead in their sins. He called to “Lazarus” specifically because otherwise every dead body on planet earth would have burst forth from the grave at His command, “Come forth!” This One speaking was none other than the Word of God made flesh. The same Word that was in the beginning with God and was God. The same Word that brought all things into being, now commanded Lazarus to rise. Some day, the Word will return with the sound of a trumpet, saying, “Arise, My love!” And the dead in Christ shall rise and those living will be changed. Do you believe this?
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for giving us life. More than that, thank You for Jesus who has given us life anew. Now empower us by Your Spirit to live life fully for You this day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
