Lazaroo – Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Jan 16, 2013 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in baffled gratitude:

“…joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints…”
(Colossians 1:11-12)

“Qualified” is the last thing I feel, Jesus.

Even in things on which I’ve focused most of my energy

I’m painfully aware I fall short.

But I could never be good enough to earn a place in heaven.

Everything I’ve accomplished is due to You.
Without You, it would have never been done.

Others may look on and occasionally praise me

but I know how undeserving I am
and You know it far better than I do.

So if someone came up to me and asked:

“Are you qualified to go to heaven and enjoy all its rewards?”

I’d feel like a total hypocrite if I said, “Yes.”

But I’d have no choice.

If You say I’m qualified…

then solely by Your goodness, grace and outrageous mercy

I am.
