Lazaroo – Friday, May 24, 2013

May 24, 2013 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in deepening gratitude:

“God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body…”
(Ephesians 1:23)

There are long-time Christians who talk like this all the time, Jesus:

“We are His body.”

But for someone who’s new to the faith –

even for a seasoned Christian who takes a fresh look at it –

this is a pretty difficult thing to picture.

How, exactly…

am I Your body?

Oh, sure –

if I go out of my way to help some hurting person
I guess then…I’m Your hands and feet.

If I watch to be sure Your mission is being carried out well
I could be acting as Your eyes.

If I tell somebody about You
maybe I’m Your mouth.

But what means the most to me is realizing

You are actually in me
and I in You.

What is Lazaroo?
