“They then took away the stone and Jesus looked upward and said: ‘Father, I thank you for having heard me. I know that you always hear me but I have said this for the sake of the crowd, that they may believe that you sent me.’ Having said this, he called loudly, ‘LAZARUS, COME OUT!’ The dead man came out, bound hand and foot with linen strips, his face wrapped in a cloth. ‘UNTIE HIM,’ Jesus told them, ‘AND LET HIM GO FREE.’ This caused many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, to put their faith in him.”
Hear Jesus call out to Lazarus.
Hear Jesus say those same words on your behalf. What happens in you as you do that?
Of what do you desire to be freed?
Heritage word—“The dear God often calls us unexpectedly.”
