Lazaroo – Saturday, July 16, 2011

Jul 16, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

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

“Judas…served as guide for those who arrested Jesus…was one of our number and shared in this ministry.”
(Acts 1:16-17)

People love to name their children after Your disciples, Jesus –

Matthew
Mark
Luke
John
Andrew
Philip
Thomas
James
Bart
Thad
Peter

except nobody

names their son “Judas.”

Only a totally ignorant – or twisted – person would do that.

It wasn’t surprising that someone turned You over to those authorities who wanted to kill You.

You had enemies beyond number.

What had to cut You to the bone was that Judas was one of the Twelve –

the most honored men in the history of the world –
who for three years got to spend every day with You.

You chose him
loved him
poured Your life into him

and still he betrayed You.

You’ve chosen me
loved me
poured Your life into me.

May my devotion

help heal what Judas did to You.

    Brings to mind the song by the Sidewalk Prophets – which can bring one to their knees, he has chosen us, poured His life into us and ………

    You Love Me Anyway
    Sidewalk Prophets
    These Simple Truths
    Chorus

    I am the thorn in Your crown
    But You love me anyway
    I am the sweat from Your brow
    But You love me anyway
    I am the nail in Your wrist
    But You love me anyway
    I am Judas’ kiss
    But You love me anyway
