Christ Our Co-Pilot

This Gospel certainly gives us some hope when it comes to the topic of death and life. Hope was made manifest in Jesus in a very real way as he raised Lazarus from the dead. It reminds us that in Christ we have the hope of new life in a very real way as well. Because of Jesus, we can survive. And even when it seems as if there is no way out of death by our own means, we know that because we are forever tied to Christ’s death and resurrection in baptism, we will be brought from death to new life as well.

Because of baptism we have a copilot throughout our lives, who is with us not only when the way is smooth, but also when the flight is bumpy. And even when it seems as if all hope is lost, Christ is there by our side, bringing us from death to new life.
