Lazaroo Friday, February 10, 2012

Feb 10, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in wistful faith:

“I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother.”
(Galatians 1:19)

 I’d settle for that, Jesus.

Oh, to spend an hour with Your half-brother James!

At first, he didn’t believe in You, did he?

None of your brothers did.

He thought You had a holier-than-thou complex
until the day he discovered:

That was no complex.
It was a fact.

What did he think when he heard You were telling people they had to hate their brothers, if they wanted to be Your disciples?!

I’m sure Satan had a heyday with that.

But then they killed You.

After You rose from the dead

You appeared to him.

Suddenly, everything changed.

If only I could ask him how that felt!

But that’s all right.

Only a little longer…
and I’ll have an eternity of opportunity to get to know Your brother…

who’s also mine.
