John 11:44 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” (NIV)

The men weren’t finished working with Jesus when they rolled the stone away.  After Jesus commanded Lazarus to come forth (He had to use Lazarus’ name or all the dead would come forth.) He told the men to remove the burial clothes so Lazarus would be free.  When we see our prayers answered or our words taking effect or the devil starting to turn away, we are still team players with God.  We must continue to listen to Him and continue to obey His leading.  The battle won’t be over until Jesus returns to earth for His Bride (the body of believers).  Every day is a day to communicate with God.   Every day is a day for us to speak His word.  Every day is a day for us to act as the hands and feet of Jesus.  In this electronic age many have become lazy.  Let us be on our guard against spiritual laziness.  Let us immerse ourselves in the Scriptures, allow the Holy Spirit to give us interpretation for application and wisdom and be loving and obedient joint heirs with Jesus, God’s only son Who loved us so must He suffered on the cross for us and rose from the dead so we could be forgiven for our sins and be filled with the Holy Spirit to strengthen, comfort and guide us each day.

Cell Phone

1 Thessalonians 5:17 17 Pray without ceasing. (KJV)

I was sitting in a parking lot waiting for someone.  As I sat I observed all the people walking around.  I found it hard to find someone who didn’t have a cell phone to their ear or weren’t looking at a cellphone.  Today it seems we want to be in constant communication with others.  God want’s us in constant communication with Him.  We have a better connection than any cell phone provider.  We don’t need to be in range of a cell phone tower.  There is no place that we can’t have a perfect connection with God.  Our carrier is His Son, Jesus.  Our phone is the Holy Spirit.  All we need do is open our mouth and talk.  Do we keep our “cell phone” to God to our ear at all times?
