Raising of Lazarus- Fr David Shehata
Bible Text: John 11:1-45 | Preacher: Fr. David Shehata |
Fr David Shehata’s sermon for the gospel readings of the liturgy (John 11:1-45, 30th of July, 2017), where he relates the story of the raising of Lazarus to Christ’s help to us and his forgiveness of our sins. If sin is death, then repentance and forgiveness are life. Despite the fact that Lazarus was in the tomb for 4 days, Christ was able to raise him and restore him to his former status. In the same way, no matter how far we have delved into sin, no matter how far gone we thing we are, Christ has the ability to forgive us and restore our hearts, if we repent and return to Him.
