Lazaroo – Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Mar 08, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with the eye of a seasoned farmer:

“I planned many times to come to you…in order that I might have a harvest among you…”
(Romans 1:13)

Is that how You want me to approach other people, Jesus –

as wide open fields of incredible potential
in which I can plant, weed, cultivate, encourage and nurture

so that one day after I have poured into them everything I’ve got –
and after You have provided the sunshine and rain I could never supply –

I will have the unspeakable pleasure
of seeing a healthy, life-giving crop springing up from their ground

knowing You worked through me to make that miracle happen?

And if that is true…

am I somebody else’s field?

O God.

Even as I pour myself into the lives of others

please lay it on the right people’s hearts
to view me as a field of incredible potential

and answer Your call to pour their lives

into me.

Psalms 126:5-6; Isaiah 44:14; 1 Corinthians 3:5-9; 1 Corinthians 9:7-19; Galatians 6:7-10; Philippians 2:14-17; Philippians 4:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20

One response so far.

  1. Paul Says:

    This Lazaroo is convicting me today.

    Imagine if those of us who call ourselves “Christians” really lived with this perspective all the time.

    Imagine if it became a way of life to the point where we look even at our enemies as having incredible potential.

    One more reason why I know I haven’t “arrived” yet.

    Keep us humble Lord.
