Lazaroo – Sunday, April 8, 2012

Apr 08, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in humble submission:

“From the fellowship offering he is to bring a sacrifice made to the LORD by fire…”
(Leviticus 3:9)

Sacrifice isn’t easy, Jesus.

If it was…
it wouldn’t be sacrifice.

There’s a closeness – a “fellowship” – that comes from sharing in the fire of Your sufferings…

though few are lining up to experience it.

When I sacrifice for You

I do without something I like
maybe even something I need.

Why do I do it?
Because You’re worth it.

You did it for me.
So I do it for You

But what is there about sacrifice that makes it so important?

Maybe it’s because when I suffer in order to please You
it’s proof that I truly love You.

When I discover within myself this willingness to lay down my life for You, it assures me that just as You rose triumphantly from the death of Your sacrifice

so will I.
