Lazarus was one of Jesus’ closest friends. But Lazarus got sick and died.
By the time Jesus arrived, Lazarus’ body had been in been in the grave four days. When Jesus saw everyone weeping and mourning, he was so deeply moved that He broke down and wept.
Jesus asked them to take Him to Lazarus’ tomb, which was a cave with a rock rolled in front of the entrance. Over their protests, Jesus ordered them to take away the stone.
Then Jesus called out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”
“Yeah, right,” the people in the crowd muttered. “As if Lazar – oo!”
Jaws dropped as the dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, a cloth around his face.
Jesus had just raised His friend Lazarus from the dead.
Which brings us to the sole purpose of Lazaroo:
To trigger the “oo” in your daily 1on1 time with Jesus.
