Jesus is….

October 6, 2010

The below came from Roy Petitfils today in his newsletter.  I highly recommend you signing up for his newsletter especially if you work with youth or have kids.  Today’s piece he shared really moved me:  

“What if…

Your relationship with Jesus is your teaching.

Your relationship with Jesus is your administration.

Your relationship with Jesus is your parenting. 

Your relationship with Jesus is your counseling.

Your relationship with Jesus is your coaching.

Your relationship with Jesus is your mentoring.

Your relationship with Jesus is your spiritual direction.

Your relationship with Jesus is your music ministry.

Your relationship with Jesus is your speaking.
 
Your relationship with Jesus is your consulting.

Your relationship with Jesus is your mission work.

Your relationship with Jesus is your campus ministry. 

The marginalized, the lost and the sick do not need more ministers. They need Jesus.

Our “ministries” are not Jesus. They are a means for us to be Christ for others. That only happens when we first allow Jesus to be Christ for us.”

What if we lived our lives like this?
