“I step forth in faith!”
Just for a moment I imagine the surge of relief and faith felt by those who were there to witness Lazarus as he stepped forth alive from the tomb.
What if I had been there when Jesus called out to Lazarus? Would I have immediately believed Jesus? Would I have felt exhilaration, anticipation, expectation? Or would such an occurrence have been far removed from anything that I could ever have imagined?
When Lazarus did step from the tomb, even those who had doubted immediately believed. Today I can still learn the valuable lesson that those who bore witness to this event learned : Through the power of the indwelling Spirit, all things are possible – if I believe.
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near… believe in the good news.”
- Mark 1:15
