Lazaroo – Saturday, December 4, 2010

Dec 04, 2010 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with Godly humility and lavish love:

“I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will have nothing to do with us.”
(3 John 1:9)

Unreal, Jesus.

This guy Diotrephes just can’t bring himself to play second fiddle…

to John the Apostle?!!!

Wow. That’s one serious set of blinders.

He’s so concerned about how John’s letter

might affect what others think of him
might drop him a notch in the pecking order

that he blows off a letter from one of the most towering spiritual figures of all time

a letter dictated by You
to become part of the Holy Bible
that has sustained Your people
for thousands of years.

To call that a stupid move

would be way too high a compliment.

Uh-huh.

So who am I

resisting
overlooking
dismissing
selling short

what message from You am I blowing off

because I have just GOT

to be first?

    Wow. Can’t believe I did that. Thanks for catching this, Rodrigo. I’ve corrected this to the right apostle!

  2. Rodrigo Says:

    I’m not sure about it being Paul here… wouldn’t it be the Apostle John?! Since he’s the author of the letter? Anyway, a very important spiritual figure nevertheless.
