After Jesus Told Lazarus to come forth from the grave and Lazarus came out wrapped in his grave clothes, Jesus said, "Unbind him, and let him go."
Jesus came to save and set people free in all areas of their lives. Many people are bound or burdened by the circumstances in their lives. As good stewards, let us be alert to the needs of others and be quick to help however we can. Ask the Lord how you can best help; sometimes just a smile or a quick phone call can make all the difference in someone's life.
