Lazaroo – Sunday, October 14, 2012

Oct 14, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with burning emotion:

“The wicked foe pulls all of them up with hooks, he catches them in his net…”
(Habakkuk 1:15)

I admit it, Jesus.

I vividly remember taking a bite of Satan’s bait.

Like a fisherman who studies the habits of his prey, he knew

what bait would entice me
when I was most susceptible
just how to dangle it in front of me.

He buried his hook deep in the bait so I wouldn’t see it or feel it

until its razor-sharp tip pierced my jaw
and I felt the hard tug of the line

pulling me away from home, friends, safety
into an unfamiliar place where I couldn’t breathe

terrified, flopping helplessly at the bottom of his boat
the life ebbing out of me
as his fillet knife approached.

If you hadn’t rescued me, I’d have been a goner.

Please.
Help me

never
ever
ever

bite that bait again.
