20 Feb Killing A Miracle
Journal Reflection of Day 12 (19th February 2017)
Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and believing in him. – John 12:9–11
Killing A Miracle
There is a price on Lazarus’ head! The enemies wanted to kill him! Why? Because Lazarus was a walking, talking messianic miracle! And many were coming to know Jesus through Lazarus’ account! And that is freaking out the people with the religious spirit!
Read John 11 to find out more about the story of Lazarus. [Click here to Bible Gateway]
It is invigorating to me that the name of ‘Lazarus’ means ‘God has helped’. In a way, we are all Lazarus. God has helped us from a destiny of eternal damnation to everlasting bliss in heaven. We are walking and talking miracles just like Lazarus. For in Him, we live and move and have our being! We are create to bring Him praise!
In the name of Jesus and by the blood of the Lamb, we silence the silencer, who is Satan. He seeks to take away our vitality and our voice! We cannot remain silent after receiving such great love from Jesus Christ, for if we do, even the stones will cry out.
Today, have you forgotten that you are a walking, talking miracle?
You are God’s rainbow!
A reminder to the world that He is still faithful and wonderful!
Hear the voice of the Holy Spirit,
“For God so loved the world that He gave His son…”
