A New You
- Darrin Simpson
John 11:44-45 NIV
"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.'"
Jesus Gave Lazarus Life...
"The greatest spiritual question we can ask ourselves is not, 'Is there life after death?' The real question is much deeper: 'Is there life before death?'" - Stephen W. Smith, The Lazarus Life
Romans 8:11 NLT
"The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you."
New Life Power – Transformational Power – Lives in us!
John 12:1-11 NIV
"Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, 'Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.' He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.
'Leave her alone,' Jesus replied. 'It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.'
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."
Passionately Pursue Jesus.
Life Change in Us Leads to Life Change in Others.
