Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with outrageous adoration:
“‘In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to my name, because my name will be great among the nations,’ says the LORD Almighty.”
That day is coming, Jesus.
I believe it.
But I don’t want to wait for it to arrive.
Because I love You with everything in me
because You deserve it – and so much more –
I want to make it happen now.
Back in the day, You told Your people how much fragrant incense meant to You –
telling them to mix it with most of their offerings.
Thousands of years later, You revealed why:
It reminds You of the prayers of Your people.
Every time I open my mouth to talk with You
praying with absolute sincerity
in transparent, no-holds-barred purity of heart
it’s like sweet-smelling fragrance to You
bringing You joy.
That’s all I need to know
to bring it.
