Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with sold-out surrender:
“Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.”
What I wouldn’t have given to be there, Jesus –
the Day of Pentecost!
the birth of Your Church
Peter, James, John and all Your apostles
Your mother Mary
Your half-brothers –
the sons of Joseph who once doubted You
firm believers –
now that they’ve seen You resurrected from the dead
huge implications for the future of the world.
But I wasn’t there.
That wasn’t my time.
I wouldn’t have fit.
You do all things well.
You knew the exact moment to bring me onstage –
to make my entrance
play my one-of-a-kind part
say my lines
make the full impact You’ve assigned to me.
No supernaturally violent wind filling this place.
Just me –
Actually…this is pretty sweet.
I’ll take it.
