Lazarus, Come Out! posted by John Sorensen on Jan 26, 2016
We may not have met them, but we know them.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. I’m referring to the characters whose stories are in the Bible. Lazarus certainly had a unique experience. Dead, buried, in the tomb for four days…then, on the command of Jesus, comes out of the tomb alive! How can we read this story without utter amazement?! And it’s no surprise that this event provided the impetus for many to share with others who Jesus is and what Jesus did for Lazarus. This is exactly what happened to each of us when we trusted Christ. One moment we were dead in sin and the next moment we were alive in Christ. This is the Gospel we share with others in the power of the Holy Spirit. And then, when we’re able to help a person pray to receive Christ, we actually see the dead raised to new life right before our eyes. It doesn’t get much better than that!
