Lazaroo – Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Aug 03, 2010 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with determined dedication:

“He answered, ‘I am a Hebrew and I worship the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the land.’”
(Jonah 1:9)

Not bad for a guy running from You, Jesus.

Even while You were punishing him –
or was it because You were punishing him! –
Jonah gave a clear, unapologetic description of You.

Running or not – will I do as well, the next time somebody asks me what I do?

Will I be deeply honored to tell them:

“I follow Jesus, the God who created everything.”?

After all, that’s the essence of who I am and what I do

…isn’t it?

How much better than to tell them what I do to earn money!

Beautifully bold.

Could I say those words – or something like them –

with gentleness and respect, as You’ve commanded me to do?

But more importantly…

am I living the life that backs them up?
