From Death To Life

John 11 details Lazarus’ resurrection, the last miracle Jesus performed. What a personally moving and emotional experience for Jesus. When he saw Mary weeping for her brother, “he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.” Jesus wept when they showed Him where Lazarus’ body was laid. Verse 38 says, “Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb.”

Jesus was especially moved, because He knew God would use this experience as a preview of His own death and resurrection in the following week.

It’s our hope that on Good Friday and Easter you will experience Jesus’s deep love for you in the message of the cross. Salvation is a crossing over from death to life, a free gift and an invitation. As Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
