In scripture we read about Jesus calling Lazarus out of the tomb of death, even though he had been dead for several days (John 11:38-44.) Jesus proclaims the message of new life by saying “Come, out, Lazarus!” Yet, the story doesn’t end there. Jesus commanded the community – “YOU go and let him loose! YOU unbind him!” Even though Jesus could have unbound Lazarus, He commanded the community to do so. The community around Lazarus gently and lovingly removed the bandages so that he could move about – and live.
That’s ministry! As Jesus raises people to new life, He is also calling YOU to “loose the bonds and unbind” those like Lazarus in our community who are shackled by homelessness, poverty, addiction, fear, and hopelessness. Volunteering through the many ministries of KARM is one way to answer that call of Christ!
