Falling Upward – March 29, 2020

Scripture: John 11: 1-45 

When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” (John 11: 43)

Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of our physical life, but instead, we discover Jesus calling us, like he did Lazarus, to “come out.” We discover ways of living life to its fullest, embracing all its nuances, ups and downs. We join Lazarus on our second journey in life…after dying to self, we are raised to follow Christ.
