Lazaroo – Wednesday, May 22, 2013

May 22, 2013 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in sober reflection:

“Fourteen years later I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also. I went in response to a revelation and set before them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles.”
(Galatians 2:1-2)

I love this about Paul, Jesus!

Was this one of the reasons You chose him?

Humility.

You used him in extraordinary ways –

people took handkerchiefs that had brushed his skin
brought them to those who were sick, demon-possessed.

You honored him by healing the sick
casting out the demons.

And still, he went up to Jerusalem

hat in hand
checking with the elders
making sure he was on track.

What a contrast with proud leaders today

who don’t possess in their entire bodies
one-tenth of the power in Paul’s little finger

yet wouldn’t consider someone else’s opinion

to save their lives

nor those unfortunate enough to follow them.
