We consider the account of Christ raising Lazarus from the dead and reflect upon the fact that physical death gives us a picture of its far worse spiritual counterpart, caused by sin. We see: 

  • Sin makes you spiritually dead. 
  • Only Jesus can make you alive. 
  • We must respond to the testimony Jesus gives us in this passage. 

Only God can give life and take it away, yet here we see Jesus doing that very thing. We understand therefore that He is God and that He is life and our only hope of eternal life.
