Lazaroo – Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Feb 16, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud…from an eternal perspective:

“‘In that day,’ declares the LORD, ‘will I not destroy…men of understanding in the mountains of Esau?’”
(Obadiah 1:8)

I know that day is coming, Jesus –

when the proud will be humbled

when no matter how wise you are
it will do no good.

But Your warning isn’t generic.

You specifically mention “the mountains of Esau” –

the descendants of the man who sold his huge rights as firstborn son

for a single meal.

Esau was so focused on what his body craved in the moment

that he despised the far greater rewards he could have enjoyed for a lifetime.

Short-term pleasure…

long-term disaster.

Please remind me, Heavenly Father –
the consequences of deliberate, continued, unrepentant sin

are eternal.

So even if I was stupid enough to believe
I could somehow enjoy the pleasures of sin
every day of my life on this earth

even that would only be

short-term.
