Lazaroo – Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Mar 30, 2011 I Lazaroo.

Ask God to reveal to you His character, as you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:

“…not violent…”
(Titus 1:7)

What is there about violence, Jesus…

that Your soul hates?

It brought about the first murder, when Cain killed Abel.
It forced You to create the first – and worst – flood.

Through the years it has caused Your people to cry out to You

for rescue

But it didn’t stop there.

After You left heaven and came to earth as one of us

You experienced violence firsthand

when violent men screamed for Your blood
whipped You
beat You with their fists
spit in Your face
slapped You
stripped You of Your clothing
nailed You to a cross
taunted You
mocked You
hurled insults at You
laughed at You
ridiculed You

How dare I stand still
remain silent

while the people of my generation
allow violence to become our entertainment?

O God.

Right here.
Right now.

I renounce forever

the violence You so passionately hate.
