Lazaroo – Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Oct 14, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with explosive feeling:

“We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.”
(1 Timothy 1:8)

That’s a huge “if,” Jesus.

Your law is good.

Period.

But You’re saying the moment I pick up Your law and try to use it –

to live by it
to apply it to my life –

I have the responsibility to use it “properly.”

Which leads me to conclude that even if I

quote Your law
act on Your law
try to live my life by Your law

I might be doing so “improperly” –

quoting it out of context
acting on it insincerely

living by a twisted version of Your law that is absolutely foreign to You.

O God!

Deliver me from that delusion!

And deliver me from the suffocating bondage of those

who attempt to use Your law to manipulate me for their own selfish purposes.
