What a story today's reading unfolds for us.
But here's what sticks with me. Lazarus has the miracle of a lifetime (quite literally) and STILL found himself in trouble. He told his story over and over and many people put their trust in Jesus because of Him. That's what a miracle is supposed to do - point to the Miracle Maker so that people believe and are saved.
For Lazarus, many did.
And then some others tried to kill him.
"So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well, because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus" (12.10-11).
His miracle was costing him. Bigger than that, people saw the miracle and STILL chose to disbelieve instead of believing and surrendering their lives to Christ.
Even the receivers of miracles are targets for the enemies of God.
