Attack of the Zombies (Almost)

I was reading this morning in John 11 – the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.

??

I love the climactic moment when Jesus shouts, “Lazarus, come out!” (John 11:43)

??

Jesus had to preface his command with the specific name of Lazarus – otherwise it would have been like the night of the living dead or the attack of the zombies – everybody in that cemetery would have been popping up out of the ground!

??

That is power! That is the resurrection power that is promised to me on judgment day. That is the power I experienced already as God as God brought new life to me though I was dead as a door nail spiritually. (What is a door nail, anyways?) And that is the power I continue to experience as God incrementally renews me from the inside-out.

??

As we approach Easter let us remember and be thankful that Christ has called us by name also – to arise and live for Him!

??

Who are you planning to invite to our Easter Celebration services on April 4th? Begin praying now and boldly invite someone you care about!

Peace,
