Jesus weeps with Martha and Mary, then after praying to the Father calls Lazarus out of the tomb, from Death to Life! We must learn to weep over the darkness and loss in the world, then pray to the Father and with God's Word of life, Jesus call others from their tombs of depression, loss, addiction, sin and shame. Jesus calls each of us to help untie those he has called from darkness to light, from death to life. Role away the stone!
