Something We’ll All Have in Common with Lazarus

What we will all have in common with Lazarus?

It won’t be:

  • that we all lived in the town of Bethany
  • that we all had sisters named Mary and Martha
  • that we all got to spend personal time with Jesus while living upon the Earth
  • that we all experienced a sickness unto death
  • that we all were buried in a tomb converted cave

It is (save the Lord’s return during our life):

  • that our bodies will come forth from the grave when Jesus calls our name! (John 5:28-29)

Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”” (John 11:43-44)
