Seeing AND Believing

If seeing is believing, what about the rest of us? We rejoice with Mary and the other disciples at their witness of an empty tomb and a risen Jesus. But what gift remains for those who weren’t there?

Scripture References: John 20:1-18

From Series: "UNBOUND and Set Free"

Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with strips of cloth, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” (John 11:43-44) When Jesus called out from the depth of sadness to his friend Lazarus, suddenly the unimaginable became possible. The God who speaks life into creation is unstoppable. What was dead was brought to life, foreshadowing the absurdly true promise God has made. As we turn our attention to the drama that will unfold during the story of Jesus’ final days, we’re reminded of all the ways we too have been wrapped up and bound for death. Journeying together in this Lenten season, we’ll take up the task of removing that which holds us back, and preparing for the moment we’ll be set free.
