Lazaroo – Monday, December 6, 2010

Dec 06, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with fresh eyes:

“Though you already know all this, I want to remind you…”
(Jude 1:5)

The longer I’ve been a Christian

this is one of the hardest things I face, Jesus.

I wrestle with a “been there, done that” mentality.

If I’ve heard it before
I tend to think I don’t need to hear it again

failing to recognize that to hear it is one thing
to understand it is another.

If I’ve actually understood a Bible verse or story
I tend to think it’s now old hat
and I need to move on

failing to realize that no matter how much understanding I’ve been given

there’s always far more to understand
than I have any idea.

Please remind me that some of Your oldest, most familiar truths

still contain hidden nuggets of incalculable worth

and that the biggest test

is not that I’ve heard or understood

but that I’ve obeyed.

1 Samuel 15:22; Proverbs 21:2-3; Psalms 32:9; Psalms 49:20; Psalms 119:34; Matthew 13:14; Romans 15:15-16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-2; Colossians 2:2-3

What is Lazaroo?
