Happy Black History MonthGoing viral is the best way to promote ourselves. But the best way to promote the gospel is to make someone a disciple of Jesus and so on and so on. Life is about creating independent souls that multiplies itself over and over again. A business plan that work for everything but with God whosoever exalts themselves will be abased.
1 When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him
2 A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
Jesus recognizes the importance of incorporating the established church into the life of believers. Staying @ home watching TV and the web is for the shut in with little or no chance of going viral.
When someone becomes a disciple of Christ the last thing the secular world want is the life of Jesus replicated. They would prefer to live like a pig consuming any and everything. After all, isn’t that the reason for going viral. To live like a devil on the loose. When our testimony is of ourselves on testimony is not true.
33 Those tending the pigs ran off, went into the town and reported all this, including what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34 Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they pleaded with him to leave their region.
The same thing is going on right now. Demons don’t drown, pigs do. They can’t keep their nose above water.
Let’s remember those who are living disciples of Christ. The unsung heroes among us of the household of faith.
Happy Black History Month.
