Lazaroo – Friday, October 19, 2012

Oct 19, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with no-holds-barred surrender:

“And the LORD God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil…’”
(Genesis 2:16)

Oh, Jesus.

“…any tree.”

So with that limitless number of trees to choose from –

apple trees
orange trees
date palms
plum trees
walnut trees
pineapple trees
pecan trees
strawberry trees 😉
nectarine trees
pear trees
almond trees
peach trees
chestnut trees
persimmon trees

and a couple thousand others –

which tree’s fruit were they dying to taste?

Right.

The one You told them not to eat.

Why?

What is there about being told I

can’t
shouldn’t
mustn’t

that makes me want to do it?

Easy answer?
“The devil.”

But the truth runs deeper:

my desire to run my own life

even though every time I do so…

I run it straight into the ground.
