Less than two weeks after he called a very dead Lazarus from the tomb to life, Jesus’ body was sealed into another tomb and guarded to ensure nobody stole it to claim he had himself risen. The authorities were also planning to murder Lazarus, to suppress such irrefutable evidence of Jesus’ Divine nature.
But it didn’t work – it only served to prove more clearly that God’s personal, supernatural power was – and is – at work. People still sin when, because it points where they don’t want to go, they reject the evidence. And that hurts both them and their neighbours. Keep growing in prayer for unbelievers, in following truth, in service, and in thankfulness for His unspeakable mercy.
He is risen indeed!
