- We might be surprise at the people around us who stink like death because they are not surrounded by a community who will help the remove their grave clothes.
- We may have been given new life in Christ, yet we still allow sin to be part of our life. We have a habitual sin that we just cannot shake...We keep the grave clothes on! This is why confessing our sins is so important- we break the bound of secrecy and invite others to help us take off our grave clothes by holding us accountable and praying for us.
- Heard the phrase "so heavenly minded that they're no earthly good?" By raising Lazarus, Jesus accentuates that this life matters. Our everlasting life with God begins when Jesus becomes our Lord and Savior. God has a purpose and a plan for our lives...to live out resurrection and invite others to experience resurrection for themselves.
Lazarus needed help taking off his grave clothes...just for fun, where were Jesus' grave clothes?
