Today’s Daily Devotional
Do you remember when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead? Jesus said, “Lazarus! Come forth!” Lazarus came out. One preacher said, “If Jesus hadn’t specifically said ‘Lazarus,’ everybody would’ve come out!”
But Lazarus was still wrapped up like a mummy. He had life, but he didn’t have liberty. Certain graveclothes were still clinging to him, impeding his freedom. Jesus told them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
Some of you are saved, but you’re still wearing the old filthy graveclothes of life before Christ—your old sinful nature. Get rid of those! You’re to be swift to hear the Word of God. But some of us don’t hear because something unclean from the old life is clogging up our spiritual ears. People are saved, born again, they’ve received the Lord Jesus Christ, their sins are forgiven, and yet, there still seems to be sort of a hangover sin holding on from the old life.
Do you want the Bible to speak to you? To be alive to you? Then willingly repent of those old hangover sins from your past life. When you repent, you’ll be free from those old graveclothes that bind you.
