Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in deepest gratitude:
“If his offering is a goat, he is to present it before the LORD.”
I can identify with this one, Jesus.
That’s exactly what I have to offer You:
That would be me.
I don’t have to tell You –
You didn’t exactly hit the jackpot
when I became a Christian.
I believe it’s the truth when You tell me heaven rejoices over just one sinner who repents.
But after they rejoiced over me
I’m guessing a few of them exchanged glances.
“Wow – now there’s a keeper!”
The great Apostle Paul – the one through whom You gave us more of the New Testament than any other –
called himself the least of the apostles
the worst of sinners.
If Paul was the least and the worst…what does that make me?
The absolute hands-down
most shocking trophy
of Your grace.
