6 April 2014 ( 5th Sunday of Lent )

[Ezekiel 37:12-14] [Romans 8:8-11] [John 11:1-45]

When we go about our daily activities, are we the one who is alive with the Spirit of God living within us, or are we enclosed in our self-made tombs? There are many of us who let ourselves be killed by unwise choices, impulses and indulgence. Easter is almost here, as Jesus brought Lazarus out of his tomb, let us pray that He will liberate us from our bondage, our fears, cynicism, despair and doubts. But no matter how devastating these deaths may be, let us take a leap of faith, for eternal life need not wait for our physical death, but it can begin here and now. It is living with Jesus’ spirit. As a child has the power to grow into adulthood, so do baptized Christians the power to live a holy life. Jesus is calling us out of our tombs. He is calling us to transform ourselves. With the power of God and combined with our Lenten sacrifices, we can transform our lives, for with His spirit in us, we can overcome what may seem to man as impossible.
