The Gift of Life (Luke 7:11-17)

Derek and his son Dominic

Jesus knocks down the walls of death, all right—but the death he conquers is bigger than just human morbidity. He conquers the death that enslaves the folks most of us don’t ever even have to look at—safe as we are in the illusion of our own security.

And we who follow Jesus, we have a responsibility—if not to raise dead bodies, then to go into the heart of a world filled with the living dead, and bring life and hope, announcing to them that death no longer calls the shots.
