Lazaroo – Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Sep 09, 2009 I Lazaroo.

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with earnest desire:

“The LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished.”
(Nahum 1:3)

Wow.

Now, there’s a promise.

Three times in the Bible You say this.

You must mean it.

On the one hand, it’s extremely satisfying to have Your Word on it:

Everybody will get what’s coming to him.

Or her.

All those people who appear to be getting away with murder

won’t.

On the other hand, Your promise terrifies me.

I don’t want what’s coming to me.

I’m guilty, all right

but “unpunished”

is what I long to be.

Is it possible, Jesus…

that because I’ve put my hope in You alone
I’m no longer guilty?

Is that what You mean when You declare You’ve removed my sins from me as far as the east is from the west?

You don’t even remember my sins?

That’s not fair.

But oh, dear God!

Is that ever love.

    In God’s infinite wisdom, He built in punishment into the “system”.
