Today I want us to think about the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, and ponder some questions about our lives today. The scripture can be found in your bible at John 11:1-45, or you can read the NIV translation by clicking here. It's a story full of doubts, tests, emotions and faith. Read it, and then come back for the questions.
1) When was a time that you lost patience with God?
2) Have you ever felt like God must have far too many important things on His plate to ever be concerned with you?
3) While most of us have never actually come back from being dead, we have all been rescued by Jesus. Think about one time in your life when Jesus said to you, "Come out of there." Is there a reason you need to hear those words today?
He Is Risen!
