Lazaroo – Sunday, May 12, 2013

May 12, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in humility before God:

 “‘I baptize with water,’ John replied, ‘but among you stands one you do not know. He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.’”
(John 1:26-27)

Count me in there with John, Jesus.

I’m not worthy to perform even the most menial task for You.

That’s not me being modest.

That’s a fact.

The problem is…

I keep forgetting that

clear
obvious
inarguable

fact.

That’s why, when things don’t go the way I want them to, I cry out in baffled anguish –

“What did I do to deserve this?!”

Seriously?

If I got what I deserved

You’d squash me like a bug.

Instead, You treat me with inexplicable

kindness
tenderness
generosity
mercy

love.

On those occasions when I’m called on to

inconvenience myself for others
sacrifice myself for You

I’m still being treated infinitely better

than I deserve.
