The Lazarus Experiment - Forty Days of New Life

The Lazarus Experiment starts Easter Sunday!

Think how Lazarus would have felt about things after being brought back to life by Jesus. What would he have done differently? How would he have seen each new day? What kinds of changes would he have made?

Lazarus represents the new life that is found in Jesus Christ because of resurrection. If we've put our trust in Jesus, we have the same kind of new life Lazarus had. Jesus has pulled us out of death - out of the grave - and into abundant living.

Sometimes we don't live like it.

The Lazarus Experiment is a challenge to live life with the joy, the boldness, the courage, the perspective, the reality of newness. If you are up to the challenge, choose one thing to do each day that reflects the kind of living Lazarus would have done after coming out of the tomb. Do one thing every day for forty days, from Easter to Ascension Day, to celebrate deliberate, intentional, new life.

For some context and ideas, read this article about The Experiment in Plain Truth Magazine.
