Lazaroo – Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Apr 17, 2013 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in shocked recognition:

“My sins have been bound into a yoke…”
(Lamentations 1:14)

That’s exactly what my sins do, Jesus:

bind me

allow Satan to lead me around

like a horse with a bridle
like a dog on a choke chain
like a cow at the end of an electric prod
like a prisoner shuffling toward the gas chamber.

I don’t want that!

I was made for freedom!

Of course, that’s what I thought I was doing when I sinned –

experiencing freedom.

Little did I know I was slipping my fingers into handcuffs
walking into a cold, dank, dark jail cell
sliding my head into the hangman’s noose.

I’ve got to stop my sinning.

Oh, I think I’ve got the

no raping
no pillaging
no bank robbing stuff

pretty much under control.

It’s these other “little” sins

that bind me

like a hundred strands of sewing thread
wrapped tightly around my wrists.

Leviticus 26:18; 1 Kings 20:37-42; Proverbs 5:22-23; Proverbs 7:7-23; Song of Songs 2:15; Jeremiah 6:13-14; John 8:31-36; Galatians 5:1; James 1:13-16; James 4:7-10; 2 Peter 2:17-22

What is Lazaroo?
