“Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth!’ And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go’.” John 11:43-44, NKJV.
Lazarus was dead, but Jesus called him forth and brought him back to life. For those that use to love seeking the Lord and spending time in His presence. For those that use to love to pray and studying God’s Word, but now you don’t. You use to be a man of ambition, but now you’re a man of comfort. Jesus is calling you forth!
He’s calling your diligence. He calling your obedience. He’s calling you from the background to lead in this hour. He’s calling lukewarm hearts to come forth. He’s calling men from a pursuit of pleasures and gain, to a deeper love for His kingdom, His righteousness and the things of God.
Jesus says come forth and it’s time to rise. It’s time to take your place. He will make everything in your life come alive!
Confession: I hear my Lord calling me, all of me, forth. I will step forward and embrace my purpose. I will do what He has called you to do. I will love Him with all your heart, not just half of it. I will let go of this world for heaven. I will advance the kingdom! I will break forth! I will come forth!
