Today, we celebrate the Raising of Lazarus as a precursor to our celebration of our Savior’s victory over death next Saturday and His Resurrection next Sunday.
We remember in these celebrations that the power of the Resurrection is not a separate power of God, but rather, it is the power of God’s love for mankind. God is Love and Love is Life. When Christ weeps at Lazarus’ grave, He weeps in His love for us as He confronts our great enemy, Death. It is the same love that summons Lazarus back to life… a love that Death itself was powerless to resist.
Wishing you blessed and holy days.
