Lazaroo – Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Mar 13, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with a welcoming heart:

“Diotrophes, who loves to be first…refuses to welcome the brothers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church.”
(3 John 1:9-10)

This guy sounds like a control freak, Jesus.

He doesn’t want new people coming into his church, because he’s afraid some of them might earn a little of the spotlight.

For Diotrophes, it’s not about winning people to You.
It’s about making sure everyone remains focused on him.

When I see that kind of behavior in others, it’s obvious – and detestable.

But do I have anything like that going on in me?

When someone new comes along and I’m slow to welcome them…

is it because I have good reason not to trust them?
or is it because I’m afraid their presence
might negatively affect my status?

O God!

May I never be the reason someone new
doesn’t find You.
