John 11:44

Jesus told then, "Unwrap him and let him go!"

Have you ever had a time in your life that you were so wound up in pain, that you just needed a friend to help you sort it all out? What about a time that to get the bandage off, you just needed the friend to get your hand free?

In this scripture I love the imagery that after this great miracle that Jesus performs he allows the loved ones of Lazarus to help him free from the bandages that bound him in death. Lazarus could not step out of the death cave and remove his own bandages. Lazarus needed help.

What about you?

Do you need help today?

Do you know a friend that might need help with their bandages?

Call them today and encourage them.

Help a friend be released from the bandages. In the original words Unwrap was "Lusate". Go Lusate someone today ~ help them be released, unbound, undo something that binds them.

After all in the original context it says Jesus commanded us to release him and permit them to go…

Helping to release,

Debbie, I believe this verse was brought to my attention in a Bible Study that we did. I had always overlooked that verse until recently.

Praying that I don't miss an opportunity to help someone as Jesus said, "Unwrap him and let him go!"
