Best Title

Lots of titles out there.

I’m not going to list them. It disturbs me to see gifts becoming titles to distinguish us in the body of Christ. Gifts will be recognized quite easily when they are from God. The gift is “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27) He didn’t claim to have a “healing ministry”,  He healed. No need for Him to draw a crowd, they followed Him.

Jesus gave up the biggest title there is, “God”, yet his disciples recognized Him. This is the same Jesus who lives in you, He’s probably a little embarrassed having to put on a show. Calling attention to Himself was not His thing, He glorified His Father. I do not think He shouted when teaching, people wanted to hear what He had to say.

Without Jesus taking the lead we feel a need to do these things. We bring attention to ourselves, and glory is misdirected. Thank God for His correction, we eventually learn His  ways bare fruit.

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
Luke 11:13 NASB

To be called a child of God is more than enough for me. How about you?
