Lazaroo – Sunday, August 15, 2010

Aug 15, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, as a sweet-smelling savor to God:

“He shall take out the memorial portion from the grain offering and burn it on the altar as an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.”
(Leviticus 2:9)

Again and again You use that phrase, Jesus –

“…an aroma pleasing to the LORD.”

Throughout Scripture, You tell Your priests to present “fragrant incense” to You.

Mary poured a whole pint of expensive perfume on Your feet, filling the house with the fragrance.

When Judas criticized her for this “waste,” pointing out its value was a year’s wages that could have been given to the poor…

You rebuked him.

“Leave her alone,” You said.

Obviously, “fragrance” is a big deal to You.

You gave Yourself up for me as a fragrant offering to God.

May Your Father detect that same, sweet-smelling aroma in me

as I give myself up for those who so desperately need You.

Exodus 30:7; Leviticus 1:9; Leviticus 17:6; Numbers 15:3; Numbers 29:35: Proverbs 16: Hosea 14:6; Mark 14:3-9; John 12:3-7; 2 Corinthians 2:14-15; Ephesians 5:1; Philippians 4:18

What is Lazaroo?
