TITLE: WHERE ARE WE?

Please let me know if this would be suitable for day devotion.
Holding a laptop rushed a businessman into the reception room of the Manager – Heathrow Airport. He looked at his wristwatch. “Please allow me inside. There is hardly any time left for me to catch this flight.” He spoke hurriedly. The Manager asked for his ticket. With anger brewing he flung it into his hands. Holding the innocent ticket the Manager became bewildered looking at the code. Once again he looked at the businessman. From his appearance and attire even a layman would correctly call him a businessman. Perfect in everything. When the Manager explained what he presumed, the businessman fled the place hanging his head in shame. The code clearly tells that the flight he was scheduled to take would leave from Gatwick Airport. He was standing in the wrong airport. Where are we today?

You and I bear the title Christian. The incident of Jesus Christ raising Lazarus from the dead is known even from our Sunday school days. Does it have an impact on us today? We are called for checking our lives. Jesus Christ came to the tomb of Lazarus. He called out with a loud voice. “Lazarus! Come forth.” A keen observation of the traditional Jewish embalmment of a dead body reveals certain interesting information. The limbs are tied separately and finally a single sheet of cloth is used for covering the entire body. If this is the situation, making a dead body stand up is not the miracle but making it walk is a marvelous thing.

God does the major part of the miracle. He expects His followers to do the follow up. Jesus Christ stood outside the tomb. After making the dead body of Lazarus come out of the tomb, what did He do? Taking out his mobile did Jesus Christ say, “Hey Peter! I have performed a miracle in the graveyard at Bethany. Come immediately along with our friends. I want your assistance in loosening Lazarus and letting him go free.”

Dearly beloved Christians, God is not bothered about our ability but He counts on our availability. He looked at the people standing close to Him and entrusted the follow up business to them. This is not easy. We are going to loosen a person tied up with burial clothes. We are called for leading such a life – a life in Christ. It is easy to die for Christ but very difficult to live for Christ. Only then there is something worthwhile in calling ourselves as ‘Christians.” Are we still at home mourning or with the Lord expecting a miracle? How close are we with the Risen Saviour? How is our spiritual growth – steadily progressing, slow or stunted? Where are we?
