Life-giving love

By raising Lazarus from the dead, Jesus shows himself to have power over death, which is a consequence of sin. He also has power to unbind us from sinful habits and inclinations that prevent us from living life more fully. What are the weaknesses and tendencies I have that need healing? Am I willing to submit to the life-giving love that the Lord offers, to respond to his ‘unbinding,’ so that I may ‘go free?’
