I find the story of Lazarus amazing. The one detail I like most about the story is that Lazarus was raised from the dead in chapter 11. Then in 12: 10 it says that the Pharisees were trying to figure out a way to kill him. He was too great a testimony to Jesus.
Which reminds me of life. Just when you get back up there’s always something to put you back into the ground again. This helps me be a realist. There is a lot in life that can seem to be against us.
So, being me, I crawl into Lazarus’ head and wonder what he imagined. I picture him sitting in an easy chair hooked up to a heart monitor. It’s now his favorite station. He called it the Life Channel.
I’m determined to live. Aren’t you?
