Lazaroo – Sunday, January 22, 2012

Jan 22, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud…with fiery indignation:

“…you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
(1 Peter 1:9)

Thanks for the reminder, Jesus.

Faith isn’t some generic characteristic all nice people should aspire to have.

My culture parrots phrases like –

“You gotta have faith!”

as though it’s a standalone value
unattached to anything in particular.

“Just believe!”

they intone – without saying in what –
as though belief itself is the point.

“You’ve got to believe in something”

they preach – as though I can pick at random

a person
place
thing

to trust.

Really?

If they truly believe in “belief”
why do they recommend it

with such an air of condescension?

No.

There’s a point to this business of

being sure of what I hope for
certain of what I cannot see.

My faith is in You.

And it has a real, tangible, all-important goal:

the salvation of my

needy
sorry
sin-sick

soul.
