This morning as I was reading the story about Lazarus and asking God to reveal a deeper meaning to me, a light came on! In John 11:43-44, it reads, “And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.”
As I pondered this, I thought of people I had known in the past and remembered something negative about them. I wouldn’t want them to do the same with me. Just as I feel I have grown spiritually, they may have just as well. Maybe Jesus was saying that to the people when He told them to Loose him and let him go. Rather than see him dead in spirit, He wanted to show them to raise their thoughts about him. Isn’t that seeing through God’s eyes when we see the Good in people.
