Our Action

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

John 11:44 The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”

Jesus spoke the word of life but Lazarus has to take action himself. He had to respond to Jesus’ word and get up to receive that life. Jesus is still speaking the word of life to us. In order for us to have that life we must respond. It takes action on our part. First we must hear it. Next we must receive it into ourselves, accepting it as truth. Then we must apply it with our action. We must get up and live out that new life God which Jesus speaks to us. We live it out through the Holy Spirit which comes into us as God’s breath of life. We inhale the Holy Spirit every day, exhaling our sins through confession and inhaling through accepting forgiveness. The we have His power to walk through the day letting His life and light shine through the darkness of others.
