but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our heart. For we never came with flattering speech, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness—nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, even though as apostles of Christ we might have asserted our authority. But we proved to be gentle [among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children.
I Thessalonians 1: 4-7 (NASB)
We are our Savior’s royal ambassadors for the glorious gospel news.
Boldly, unashamedly pointing all we meet to the loving, victorious,
hope-filled transformational, Cross procured mercy and loved drenched
Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord. Not pleasing the worldly culture but blessed
and honored to live in such a Biblically counter-cultural way, that all will
Stand in awe and humble wonder as we all expectantly and
victoriously watch and pray for those “But God” moments in
our day to day activities, a divine, and Holy moment where our
triumphant Triune God divinely, miraculously, lovingly, righteously,
gloriously intervenes in our hearts, souls, minds, and lives. For truly we
can always rejoice for our all-sufficient Savior, our Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Emmanuel is always tenderly with us and always omnipresently there.
