We are having our spring revival at church this week. I do not remember the revival being so close to Easter before, but I have to admit the timing has been perfect for me. What a wonderful way to prepare for Easter…….searching my own heart, being encouraged in the word and rejoicing to see others come to Christ! It has been a good week. Tonight, I am teaching the littlest guys in the children’s program while the service is going on. (A bit of a bummer – although, I love teaching….tonight’s message is on prophecy which I would love to hear.) I know the children have been learning the Easter story at home, in Sunday school and even in Junior Church….so, I thought I would teach the story of Lazarus – with a few references to Christ’s resurrections…..both similarities and differences! photo from the internet John 11:43-44….”And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth…..” I Corinthians 15:3-4….”For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Crist died for our sins according to the scripture; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” Praising the Lord, today, for victory over death!!
