Verse for Recollection throughout the Day:
“And the chief priests plotted to kill Lazarus too, /
because many of the Jews were turning away /
and believing in Jesus because of him.”
Having entered into Jerusalem with Jesus, we recall the testimony about Jesus in Bethany, where Lazarus is a sign that arouses the wrath of the Jews. Lazarus probably laughed at the idea of being threatened by the Jews: he had already experienced death, and been raised by Jesus. How could the Jews “touch” Jesus? They have no power over him. We, too, must be willing to testify to the power of Our Lord over us. We cannot fear those who threaten us in this world, for they have no power over us. They have power only over things that God has already commanded us to forsake.
Would I be willing to be raised from the dead, if it meant dedicating the rest of my life to giving witness to the One who raised me from death?
