Lazaroo – Sunday, May 3, 2009

1 comment, May 03, 2009

 “Then the word of the LORD came:  ‘Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while [the LORD’s] house remains a ruin?’”
(Haggai 1:3-4) 

I know You don’t actually live in buildings made by human hands, Jesus.

Heaven is Your throne.  The earth is Your footstool. 

Even if You did want to inhabit some place on earth, You have the ability to create for Yourself the most spectacular dwelling humankind has ever seen.

But that’s not how You do things.  You love to work through Your people. 

We have built for You temples, sanctuaries and cathedrals – even though You are just as happy to meet with us in barns, malls and underground houses.

So I’ll confront the real issue: 

When it comes to my own place of worship –

Is there any way I am putting my own house ahead of Yours?
Psalms 33:8-9; Exodus 20:2-3; Ezekiel 23:38-41; Malachi 3:8-12; Matthew 21:12-13; Luke 14:23; Matthew 6:25-34; Acts 7:44-50; Acts 17:24

What is Lazaroo?

One response so far.

  1. John Tevault Says:

    I am guilty at times of trying to put my house first, then I
    “think WWJD” and how only through His love and grace,
    will allow me to get my house in order. for when I tried to be the boss, I’d fall short everytime. Now when things don’t go the way ” I think” they should, GOD is preparing me to get my house in order.
