Thursday’s Thoughts from Pastor David!
The first Thursday after Easter and the last Thursday of the month of April!
On Easter Sunday, Christians all over the world celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
Out of the belly of death (after being digested for three days), Jesus arose out of the depths and out of the tomb to life once again!
There’s only one person who has stayed dead longer than Jesus to come back to life.
That would be Jesus’ good friend Lazarus.
Lazarus was dead in the tomb for FOUR days!
Jesus arrived at the tomb encasing the dead body of Lazarus and told the mourners and family members to remove the stone.
The response was overwhelmingly negative…
Let me paraphrase…
“Oh Jesus… Don’t do that. Lazarus has been dead for four days and his decomposed body will stink to the high heavens! Can’t you just say a prayer instead?”
