In John 11:25, Jesus says to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life, He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”  

I love this chapter in John speaking of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. It was and absolute miracle; Lazarus had been dead for days and was already buried in a tomb.What a demonstration of God’s power over death, hell and the grave.

And, I love verse 44 where Jesus says, “loose him and let him go.”What a wonderful illustration of the truth that Jesus frees us from whatever binds us, most importantly, our sin.

Do you know of someone who is bound up and buried in the darkness of sin? If so, let me encourage you to pray for them right now and ask Jesus to deliver them from what binds them.

In just a few days we’ll be celebrating the resurrection of our Savior, what better time to share our faith so others can, perhaps for the first time in their life, celebrate with us.
