From the Editor’s Desk: Spring 2007

 

Quentin Schultz

In a recent meeting I attended, expert communicator Dr. Quentin Schultz reminded us that all followers of Jesus are called to be servant communicators. All of us are part of the story that God is telling in the world, the story of His love, power, and forgiveness that is embodied in the life of Jesus. Intentionally participating with God in telling that story has much to do with the laying down of our lives, becoming a servant.

In an age where image and power are glorified we are called to humility and surrender. Paul said, “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power” (1 Cor 2:4, NKJV).

Father, teach us the lessons of obedience and humility. Forgive us for putting ourselves in the center and lamely taking credit for what you have done in and through us. Open our eyes to see the world as you see it and lay down our lives as Jesus showed us. Empower us today to live and tell that story so that Jesus may be lifted up.
