From Death to Death?

“Then the leading priests decided to kill Lazarus too, for it was because of him that many of the people had deserted them and believed in Jesus.” (John 12:10-11)

You remember Lazarus, right?  He was the guy Jesus raised from the dead. Apparently, Lazarus was so grateful that Jesus had brought him from death to life that he was willing to tell people about it.  And as a result, many people believed in Jesus.

But it wasn’t without risk on Lazarus’ part.  He placed his life on the line when he told people about Jesus.  He was potentially going from death to life and back to death, if the leading priests had their way.

If you are a Christian, you have been brought from spiritual death to spiritual life through faith in what Jesus accomplished on the cross and through his resurrection.  When was the last time you took a risk and told someone about what Jesus did for you, and what he can do for them?
