In the story of Lazarus, the grave has been defeated and liberty achieved. Yet it is only a partial sign of the coming victory of Jesus’ resurrection, since Lazarus will need to die again and enter the grave until the final resurrection. But it is a great sign of the life that is stronger than death, which those who believe in Jesus share. We embody that life in our community. Being raised from the dead entails a community dedicated to loving one another in the liberating love of Jesus Christ.
