Jesus Christ has the power to change lives. He can save us from our sin and help us change our lives. A great example of that is Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.
In John 11, Lazarus, the brother of Mary & Martha dies. When Jesus heard about his death, He didn’t respond immediately. Instead, He waited a day or two. Then Jesus went to the home of Lazarus.
When He arrived there, Lazarus has been dead a few days. Jesus went to the tomb of Lazarus and shouted, “Lazarus, come out!”
And the Bible says Lazarus came out with his hands and feet bound in a headcloth. Jesus said, “Unwrap him and let him go!”
Jesus raised the dead. If Jesus can raise the dead, He can save us and change us as well. Now, someone may say, “But you don’t realize what I’ve done . You don’t realize the sins I’ve committed.”
I don’t and I don’t need to. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, Jesus can and will forgive you of your sins if you will ask Him. And, Jesus helps us change our lives.
After raising Lazarus, Jesus said, “Unwrap him and let him go.” Jesus was referring to the cloths on Lazarus. But, He says the same to us. We may not be wearing burial clothes but Jesus wants to free us from our sins.
Today, ask Jesus for forgiveness and help in changing your life.
