Lazaroo – Saturday, September 29, 2012

Sep 29, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Prepare yourself, as you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:

“They will fight against you…”
(Jeremiah 1:19)

This is a hard truth, Jesus.

I want everyone to like me.
I enjoy people’s approval.
I don’t like having enemies.

But this sounds like a promise:

If I stand for You

I can be sure there are people
who will stand against me.

That makes sense, of course.

It’s hard to deny the logic.

If they hate You
then the more I

look like You
act like You
think like You
talk like You
live like You

the more they’ll hate me.

I wish I didn’t have to deal with this.

But I have to decide, don’t I?

It’s You

or them.

Emotionally, that’s tough –

especially when they’re

life-long friends
family members. 

But the choice is clear:

If I choose You

I lose them.

If I choose them

I lose You.

 

I’m really going to miss them.
