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



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?!”


If I got what I deserved

You’d squash me like a bug.

Instead, You treat me with inexplicable



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.

What is Lazaroo?
