Hear the Voice of the Lord!
“I knew that You hear Me, but I have said this on account of the people standing by, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
When He said this, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.”
Jesus allowed His dear friend Lazarus to die. And Lazarus was dead for four days. In other words, he was truly dead! But for Jesus, death is not the end of the story!
Jesus calls and death has no power!
On this 5th Sunday in Lent, when Holy Week is only a week away, we are brought to the side of the Grave of Lazarus to remind us of the Power of the Lord Jesus! Perhaps something in us has died. Perhaps we have given up hope for something very important for us. Perhaps we are a Lazaruslike person! May be we are called to listen to the Lord’s words.
Unbind him, and let him go free!
We are called to be freed from the things that make us feel dead! We are called to be free!
