Lazaroo – Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Apr 22, 2009 I Lazaroo.


“But Daniel resolved not to defile himself.
(Daniel 1:8)

I don’t want to defile myself, either, LORD.

Although You hate all sin, I know there are certain things You especially detest – things that threaten to ruin all that is good and holy.

God help me:

Be sexually obedient to You.
Never turn to a medium for advice.
Do everything in my power to preserve the lives of innocent children.
Keep a clear conscience before You.
Stay free of all bitterness.
Put You first above everything and everyone else.

But it’s too late. 

I’ve already defiled myself, because Your law is like a chain – when I break even one link, I’ve broken the whole chain.

I confess my sin.  Help me detest it as much as You do. 

Rip it out of my life and purify me!

In Jesus’ Name.

Amen.

    John and Jeff – I love your poetic language!

    “…to continue letting the seed inside me to grow…”

    “the Grace…that fills all the gaps of my failures.”

  2. Jeff Says:

    Lord, help me let the Spirit that you placed inside me guide me in obedience. And, thank you, God, for the Grace that you extend to me that fills all the gaps of my failures.

  3. John Tevault Says:

    It is through things like this, that do help me to purify myself, also to try to the best of my ability to live in the holy name of Jesus. And ask Jesus to continue letting the seed inside me to grow. Like the song let your light shine, for the whole world see!
