Lazaroo – Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Oct 10, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with earnest self-examination:

“On the day…foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like one of them.”
(Obadiah 1:11)

You’re talking about traitors, aren’t You, Jesus?

Christians who act like Your enemies
rather than Your friends.

How does someone who used to be all in

get crosswise with Your people?

A lot of it springs from human weakness, doesn’t it?

I see someone preaching one way
but living another.

Hypocrisy.

Or maybe I have a strong idea about

who
what
when
where
how

something in Your Church should be done

but the majority
or a small, powerful minority

end up doing it differently

leaving me feeling

disrespected
isolated
estranged.

At such times I have a choice, don’t I?

I can keep loving and serving Your imperfect Church
or I can turn on her like a junkyard dog.

But if You don’t give up on Your bride

how can I?
