While I was reading the account of the resurrection of Lazarus yesterday I had a wonderful picture about our salvation.
When we recognise Jesus and hear His voice we are brought back from spiritual death, and created new.
However when we come to salvation we are still bound up with many of our old attitudes and mind-sets.
We still cannot see all the truths about Jesus in His Word.
So, as Lazarus had to remove the graveclothes from his body and the napkin from his face, we needed to remove the bondages holding us back from our true potential.
If we have our spiritual eyes covered we cannot see the truths in the Word.
If we are still in bondage to our graveclothes (religion and legalism) we cannot move into the freedom of what we have in Christ.
We remove our ‘graveclothes and napkin’ through renewing our minds to the truth in His Word.
Mind renewal is key to moving into the abundant life that Jesus came to provide for us (John 10 v 10).
Mind renewal removes error in our thinking and helps us move into health and prosperity.
Wrong thinking leads to wrong living, as right thinking leads to right living; and mind renewal is the key to this.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have been created new in my spirit and have been brought back to spiritual life through faith in Jesus Christ”.
John 11 v 44…..And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said unto them, Loose him, and let him go
