Lazaroo – Thursday, October 8, 2009

Oct 08, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in humble honesty:

“…we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints – “
(Colossians 1:4)

I do love the saints, Jesus!

Some of them more than others.

Well…okay. You know the truth.

Some Christians I love a lot.
Some I love a little.
And some of them I love…

officially.

Which is to say…

not much at all.

But what can I do about that, Father?

You know some people are a whole lot easier to love than others!

Of course…

…the ones who are hardest to love

probably need it the most.

Wow.

I’m blowing it, aren’t I?

Especially since – for all I know –

I’m just a tad bit harder to love than I think I am.

Maybe I’d better start over

and let You choose who…and how much…

to love with Your amazing love

through me.

    That’s good. We’re all somewhere between Adam and Jesus, but I like to just remember how much Jesus followed the Father’s will, and the Father loved us SO much that He allowed the only one who loved Him completely to suffer humiliation, pain and death – so we would KNOW what love really is. It is devoid of self and without conditions placed upon it.

    Thanks for the words.

    yup… this one is a biggy for me …. i recently rambled about this dilema in my own blog http://wp.me/pjspe-9G but yours, Pastor Steve, is much more eloquently succinct! Thank you for sharing.

    You’re right, Mary Ann. It IS tough to feel “hard” toward someone (for very long) whom you’re asking God to richly bless. Great, honest insights.

  4. Mary Ann Says:

    Great message, Pastor Steve. Thanks so much.
    I am trying to give those I am struggling with to God, and I try to pray for them to bless and be blessed. It is tough to feel “hard” toward someone (for very long) who you are praying for. I also ask God to change me. It is up to God to change others. It is up to me to cooperate with God to change me. It also helps me to remember that the person or persons I am struggling with are God’s son(s) and daughter(s) and how much He loves them even though I don’t find them to be very loveable.

    Gary – thank you so much for letting us know you’re not receiving your daily Lazaroo.

    Because of our growth, we’ve been forced to change to a different company to send them out. To start receiving your daily Lazaroo again, please take these steps:

    1. Go to http://Lazaroo.com
    2. Click on “Get Lazaroo by E-mail”
    3. Enter your new E-mail address
    4. Look for the Confirmation E-mail in your inbox (if it doesn’t show up there, check your spam or junk mail folders!)
    5. Click on the link inside your Confirmation E-mail, to let our new company know you want to receive Lazaroo each day.

    That’s all there is to it!

    You should start receiving your daily Lazaroo the very next morning.

    If for any reason you do not receive your Confirmation E-mail or your daily Lazaroo, please let usknow right away!

    I’m SO glad Lazaroo is worth this kind of effort on your part. That inspires me to give you and God my very best through Lazaroo, each and every day.
