Daily Reading: John 11-12

John 12:10

But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

Really? They were planning on putting to death the one who came back from the dead? Death held no fear for him, death had no permanent grip on him, death was no mystery to him, nor was it a threat. But there they are, the pitiful, small minded, vindictive, and short-sighted so-called priests thinking they could put Lazarus to death. Death was all they knew, just destroy anything or anyone who dared to oppose them. Silly boys! To Lazarus, death was a promotion as it is with any one of God’s children!

Lazarus must have laughed at their ignorance. Death to him was a passageway back to paradise. It held no terror, no horror, for Lazarus had been there…and back. How do you kill a person who is already dead and resurrected? How indeed.

Until tomorrow, live for Christ today.
