Proclaiming the Christ

The Good Shepherd

JESUS MAFA. The good shepherd, from Art in the Christian Tradition, a project of the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, Nashville, TN. [retrieved August 24, 2014].

[Jesus] said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:15-16

My words, attitudes, behaviors, and actions are all that I have to proclaim Jesus as the Christ.

Does my way of being in the world proclaim  compassion? forgiveness? nonviolence? humility? healing? community?

To those I know and those I don’t know, am I a loving presence ? respectful? courteous? generous?

Do I speak words that encourage? lift up? give hope? inspire?

How will I proclaim Jesus the Christ today?

    I have not known what it is about our blog, that brings me such peace. I await your post every Sunday. As I was reading this post I understood what it is. You proclaim Christ so well. All of your words inspire me, and the way you write brings such peace. I thank you so much for your beautiful soul, how I await to see it weekly. God Bless, SR

    Great food for thought for me. I call Christ my Lord and Savior. Do my thoughts, words, actions–my attitude in living add up to this. Not always. Let this be my guide. Thank you, dear heart!
