Thinking about Jesus, Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, I realize how much we all need new life and re-birth in this life. we need to know that there is always a new possibility for us. It is not hopeless. Just when they thought that there was no hope for Lazarus to be resurrected (since he had been in the tomb for three days), Jesus showed up and brought him back to life. Jesus showed up for Lazarus and is there for us as well. We must turn our eyes on Jesus for new life rather than looking at the limits around us. We must be willing to see the possibilities. Don’t worry about the doors that have been closed, look at the opportunities that are in Jesus. After all, if Jesus can bring Lazarus back from the grave after three days, imagine what Jesus can do for you. If you would like to read the passage, it is found here.
