Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with total transparency:
“Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself…”
Well when You put it that way, Jesus…
I want in.
Of course, that entrance requirement –
stretches me a bit.
If in the annals of understatement there was ever a contender for Top Ten
that was it.
“Stretches me a bit?”
To be “godly” means to be like You!
I’m not exactly in the habit of having the people who know me best look me in the eye and say:
“You sure remind me of Jesus”
although I wish they could
…and be honest.
The good news is I was created in Your image –
which definitely gives me a shot.
But with my sins, I’ve sprayed graffiti all over Your image.
By the power of Your indestructible Life within me
guess I’d better start scrubbing.
