Lazaroo – Sunday, April 18, 2010

Apr 18, 2010 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with burning zeal:

“Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
(Galatians 1:10)

Jesus, I know You want me to

please everybody I can
in every way I can

for You.

But the moment I try to please even one person

instead of You
or even ahead of You

I am no longer Your servant

but theirs
and Satan’s.

Politicians dare not call themselves Christian

unless they’re willing to lose votes.

Parents can’t claim to set a Godly example

unless they’re willing for their children to hate them.

Pastors can’t claim to faithfully lead their flocks

unless they’re willing to lose church members.

When I cannot please You and Your people at the same time

may I always choose

to please You.
