New Life in Christ

Date: April 2, 2017Liturgical Day: The Fifth Sunday in Lent; Year A

razing Lazarus an invitation to faith the gift of new life

Summary: Jesus raises Lazarus from death, and gives him the gift of new life. The faith of Martha and others leads them to new life as well. This is the gift of Christ to all who believe — and the faith which the season of Lent seeks to nurture in us today.

Some discussion Questions: 1. In what ways does my faith in Christ help me to experience the life God wants me to know? 2. Reflecting on Ezekiel 37:1-14, what aspect of my life cries out for the new life that only comes from God? 3. When do I feel the tension between my fallible human nature and the spiritual life?
