2 Corinthians 4:5
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
It is hard to think of others, and not ourselves, first. I will admit it does not always happen naturally for me. Paul is reminding the church in Corinth that he is not wanting people to come to him, but to come to God. Paul offers himself as a servant to all in order to bring others to Christ. I am certain I need work in this area. When I am too focused on myself, any invitation to know Christ will be unclear to others. I pray this morning for God to open my heart in servanthood to others I meet along the way. Help me, Lord, to put myself in the role of servant for you. Amen
