Lazaroo – Friday, January 8, 2010

Jan 08, 2010 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with deep reverence:

“They have told the church about your love.”
(3 John 1:6)

Is my love that remarkable, Jesus?

Actually, I don’t have to ask You that.
I already know the answer.

No.

My love isn’t good enough for the people in my church to brag about.

Not even close.

The brutal truth about my love is that it is

deeply flawed
on-again/off-again
selfish, self-serving, self-centered

But thank God!

I’m not imprisoned in the tiny, cold cell of my love –

I’ve got Yours!

Your love is

deep, warm and boundless
always there – when times are easy and when they’re hard
self-sacrificing, honored to serve, others-focused

Now, when I catch myself recoiling from the messy demands of needy people

all I have to remember is to step out of the dark confines of my own shriveled soul

and into the radiant fullness of Your life-changing, life-giving love.
