For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
2 Corinthians 4:5
Our message is not ourselves. Jesus is Lord. One day all
of creation will acknowledge and praise him. But for the people around
us to praise Jesus today, they need to see him alive in us. We serve
others in Jesus’ name. We are his body — his hands of compassion, his
heart of mercy, and his voice of tenderness. So let’s lift up Jesus —
not just by telling others about him, but serving others as his presence
in the world.
