Lazaroo – Thursday, March 21, 2013

Mar 21, 2013 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with razor-sharpened attention:

“I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body…”
(Philippians 1:20)

Are You kidding me, Jesus?

When did You sneak this verse in there? 😉

Okay, okay, I know –

it was there all along.

Still, I have to admit I’ve never heard a sermon preached on this verse as it affects…

my body.

Maybe I heard it
and just didn’t pay attention.

Wouldn’t be the first time.

But there it is, unavoidably explicit:

What I do with my body matters to You.

You make it clear that it’s possible for me to be ashamed by what I do with my body.

But it’s also clear…

that with Your supernatural courage coursing through me

it’s actually possible for me to be

in no way ashamed.

Got it.
