Died To Bring Forth Fruits
Lazarus was dead for four days and Jesus raised him from the dead.
Lazarus was evidence that Jesus is the resurrection and life. Consequently many people who saw the risen Lazarus believed in Jesus and was saved.
Our flesh must be dead to sin and our spirit alive in Christ for us to bear fruits of righteousness, love, joy, peace and patience
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
Today, as you reflect on the passion of Christ be reminded that He bore it all for LOVE.
