Lazaroo – Friday, March 18, 2011

Mar 18, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with eyesight sharpened by faith:

“It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.”
(Philippians 1:15)

Thank You for giving it to me straight-up, Jesus.

Some of Your spokespeople have hearts that aren’t right.

For them, it’s all about one-upmanship:

they’ve got to have a bigger crowd than the next preacher
more of the latest/greatest buildings and equipment
more praise from the people who gather to hear them preach.

What happened to them, Jesus?

Was there never a time when they were truly Yours?

Or did following You prove to be so much harder than they imagined it would be

that they just bold-faced sold out?

Is it possible that others of them are Satanically blinded?

Or self-deluded?

But thanks even more for reminding me:

not everyone is like that.

Don’t let me get cynical, Jesus!


Help me keep my eyes focused solely

on You.
