Lazaroo – Friday, February 24, 2012

Feb 24, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with grateful courage:

“…of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher. That is why I am suffering as I am.”
(2 Timothy 1:11-12)

We don’t get this, Jesus.
Or even if we claim to…we sure have a hard time retaining it.

Here’s the great Apostle Paul, who’s doing everything You tell him to do –

and he’s suffering.

Why?

Well, it’s not because he’s sinning.
It’s not because he’s acting foolishly.

It’s because he’s doing everything you tell him to do.

Something inside us screams –

“That’s unfair!”

Somehow, I’ve got it in my head that if I do what’s right

good things will happen to me
people will like me better
my life will get easier.

Why else would I do what’s right?

Oh.
Yeah.

Because it pleases You.
Because I owe You my very life – now and forever

come what may.
