Lazaroo – Monday, April 15, 2013

Apr 15, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, without complaint:

“Hear the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob, all you clans of the house of Israel. This is what the LORD says: ‘What fault did your fathers find in me, that they strayed so far from me?’”
(Jeremiah 2:4-5)

There’s absolutely no fault in You, Jesus.

None.

I have no excuse.

But I’ve heard this question before – 

from the devastated person whose spouse has cheated:

“What did I do to deserve this?!!!”

Of course, there’s never any excuse for adultery

so the answer most of us give is:

“You did nothing to deserve this.”

But that’s not true, is it?

We’re all sinners.
We deserve worse than anything we get –

including someone who cheats on us.

We deserve death.

Make that: I deserve death.

So in truth, I can never wail, “What did I do to deserve this?”

Because down deep

I know the answer.
