Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

We are evidence in an important on-going trial. Yes we are!

Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and putting their faith in him.
- John 12:9-11 TNIV

The living-again Lazarus was powerful evidence of the life-giving power of Jesus. The religious authorities thought killing Lazarus would help their cause; get rid of the evidence.

Jesus tells us elsewhere in John's gospel that the world watches us, because we too are evidence that Jesus Christ changes lives. I pray today that my life has evidence-value. How about you?
