Lazaroo – Sunday, December 30, 2012

Dec 30, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with sold-out surrender:

“Give the Levites to Aaron and his sons; they are the Israelites who are to be given wholly to him.”
(Numbers 3:9)

It’s hard to give myself to You, Jesus.

It shouldn’t be, but it is.

Because saying it and doing it

are two vastly different things.

Your disciple Peter said he’d never desert You

but when his life was on the line
he denied even knowing You.

Three times.

Saying I will give myself completely to You gives me a warm, wonderful, noble feeling.

Actually doing it –

in the very moment when it’s about to cost me everything –
makes my blood run cold.

Still…when those moments come
I fervently hope I will pass the test

every time.

Since I struggle this much to give myself to You…

how much harder it is to submit
and give myself wholly

to another flawed human being!
