Lazaroo – Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Mar 16, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with the measure of faith God has given you:

“…ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus…”
(Ephesians 1:15)

That’s the kind of faith I long to have, Jesus –

the kind somebody hears about
because somebody else saw it and was inspired by it

enough to talk about it.

But that kind of faith doesn’t come quickly or cheaply, does it?

It’s not wishful thinking.
It doesn’t flow from the imagination of my own mind.

It starts with soberly taking stock
of how much faith You’ve already given me

confirming it in Your Word
then stepping out in it

living it
walking it
talking it

while begging You for more.

Every new step of faith I take becomes more challenging

because the mountains in my life seem to get bigger

but every new step of faith I take becomes easier

because not one of Your good promises to me has failed.

    I love your heart, Rod! You’re in the right place, now, man. You are right: It is NEVER too late to be redeemed. Jesus absolutely promises to forgive you and give you a brand new start – this very instant: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9. Welcome back, my brother. We need you.

    My faith has been weak for a while now. I have not been close to the Lord a I’m ashamed of this. I have not been talking to the Lord very much and I know that I have been sinning a lot. I really need Jesus so much right now and I need his forgiveness. I guess it’s never to late for someone to be redeemed for their sins.
