Lazaroo – Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Aug 03, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with explosive feeling:

“We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you…”
(2 Thessalonians 1:12)

Are you serious, Jesus?

I understand that Your name is glorified when people

drive openmouthed through a spectacular range of mountains
discover new wonders in Your expanding universe
relax on a beach to the sound of crashing surf
gather in hushed awe to witness the birth of a baby.

But how could Your name be glorified in me?

I’m not at all impressive.

How could anyone take a look at me

and think more of You?

My constant fear is that the reverse will happen –

they’ll take one look at me
and wonder what in the world You were thinking

when You made me.

But if only they could get a glimpse for the briefest moment
of what I’d be without You…

they would fall on their faces in worship.

What is Lazaroo?
