Lazarus was alive, again, but the people around him had to remove the remnant of his death - his grave clothes…and then they released Him. They didn’t lead him to church or the prayer meeting. They let him “find himself” (Christ in him).
I don’t think God is so concerned about the paths we take. He is the Father, giving the full inheritance to His sons and daughters, knowing they may make choices with consequences, but knowing they will return.
Do we (the dead still bound in some ways) get to choose those we trust to remove our grave clothes? Do we allow only brothers and sisters in the faith, near? Only the high and mighty? Or do we trust that our release from death can be brought even by the lowly, weak, and even those that believe differently?
Do we truth Him with ourselves and others?
I don’t pretend to know what John Lynch would say, although I do remember (hopefully correctly) that he wished his gay barista congratulations on his upcoming wedding. Love offered. The finest drink of all.
Love first, allow Him to draw us all into His love.
I think in allowing all others near is the fullest healing possible.
