Might want to take a glance in the mirror after you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:
“Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out…”
This is the one I don’t see coming, isn’t it, Jesus?
I expect to find people with impure spirits in bars
at ball games
at the mall
on the street
at the movies
on the Internet
but I don’t expect to find them in church.
I keep forgetting Your Church is not just a rest home for saints.
It’s a hospital for sinners.
So I don’t know why I’m so shocked to find this many of them here…
but I am –
especially when I see them in positions of authority
volunteering their time and talents
serving here, there – everywhere I look
acting like they belong.
Something needs to be done about all these flawed people in the church, LORD!
starting with me.
