March 26, 2023 | Fifth Sunday in Lent

Pastor Denise Clark-Jones


In our Old Testament reading for today, the prophet Ezekiel is taken to a valley of dry bones and is commanded to prophesy life over what was dead in the house of Israel. Israel will not be restored politically, but spiritually. The psalmist begins with a prayer for deliverance from personal trouble but ends with a message to all of Israel. Because God is loving and merciful, God will free all from the bondage of sin, which brings spiritual death as it separates us from God. In our Gospel reading, Jesus also weeps for our human brokenness. In raising his friend Lazarus from death, he invites us to allow him to raise what is dead in us to new life. The Apostle Paul explains that if we are motivated by worldly desires we cannot please God; but if we are one in the Spirit with Christ, the Holy Spirit motivates our lifestyle to be like Christ.
