Our Lord’s raising of Lazarus from death’s domain shows us, like no other miraculous sign Jesus did, that God is the giver of life. We who journey through Lent are wise to remember that the pilgrimage we make is one that ends not on that lonely hill of Calvary but at the garden’s empty tomb. We have ashes smeared on our brow on a Wednesday to remind us of our mortality, only to wake up on a Sunday, transformed by God’s triumph of life over death.
Make these last days of Lent days full of good choices and life-changing decision. Be the person God made and still makes you to be in Jesus Christ. Let God’s life-giving Spirit so bless your life that all things are new for you through Jesus Christ our Lord.
