Year A, Lent 5
God commands Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones, and the come to life again.
Jesus calls to Lazarus in the tomb, “Lazarus, come out!”
Again and again, God is calling us to live – truly live. Too often we settle for lives that are just tolerable. We get by and mistake that for living. That is not what God had in mind for our lives! God created all of us to be expressions of God’s love. Our purpose is to love and be loved. That is a joyful purpose. The world would try to convince us that surviving is enough, but Jesus calls us to live resurrection lives now. The question we all face is, will we answer that call?
