You know the story where Jesus brings Lazarus back to life, right? Well, let’s look for a sec at John 11:44.

The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, ‘Take off the grave clothes and let him go.'”

Isn’t it interesting how Jesus said, “Let him go”? It’s almost like Lazarus was a prisoner. But I suppose that death is like a prison ~ and eternal death means eternal suffering. If we put our hope and trust in Jesus, though, we’re promised eternal life ~ and that is eternal freedom from death.
