“Commands of Life” John 11:38-44

The Spoken Word Christian Church https://thespokenwordchurch.com

As we enter the month of December, we also enter the Christmas season, where we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  He would grow to be the one who would destroy the barrier between death and life for us, inviting us to be free from sin and to have new lives in Him.  Listen today as Pastor Bob continues His study through the Gospel of John and talks about how Jesus alone has the commands for life.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from John 11:38-44

Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead

38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.

“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”

43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 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.”
