Lazaroo – Sunday, July 17, 2011

Jul 17, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with unshakable trust:

“Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey your words, whatever you may command them, will be put to death.”
(Joshua 1:18)

Your people gave Joshua a stunning vote of confidence, Jesus.

In today’s climate, we’d say they gave him too much power.
Way too much.

Obviously, they placed a high value on unity.

The very idea that disobeying Joshua’s commands meant death
would terrify most of the people I know.

I guess that was the point.

Wow.

You know me, Father – inside and out.

What if several million people put that much trust in me?

How would I handle it?

Many people believe power corrupts…
and that absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Would that be true of me?

Actually, there’s a pretty simple way to find out, isn’t there?

You once said whoever can be trusted with very little

can be trusted with much.
