Lazaroo – Thursday, May 3, 2012

May 03, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with undiluted sincerity:

“Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I am the worst.”
(1Timothy 1:15)

This is a hard one to grasp, Jesus –

Maybe that whole thing Paul confessed in Romans 7

was much bigger than I realized.

The thing is, he says this is a trustworthy “saying” –

which means everybody should say it.

Including me.

Well…that’s not much of a stretch, is it?

I know some really rotten things about myself.

Except…objectively…

can I honestly call myself the world’s worst sinner?

worse than mass murderers?

rapists?
dictators?
terrorists?

my 7th grade gym teacher? (just kidding)

Maybe what Paul is saying…
is that if it doesn’t feel to me like I’m the world’s worst sinner…

I don’t have a clue
about how deeply all that junk You’ve forgiven me for

really hurt You.
