A Verse for Meditation

We do not proclaim ourselves; we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as servants for Jesus’ sake.  2 Corinthians 4:5 

Questions for prayerful meditation:

 ·         If I invite someone to church and that person responds with remarks about some “mythical God” or insults me for my “primitive idea about a god” who is being insulted?

 ·         Who did Paul think he was in the big picture? Who am I?

 ·         In conversations on  Facebook and elsewhere, some people tell me to keep my religion to myself. Does this verse provide any suggestion for a response to that concept?

 ·         What is the difference between asserting my right to free religious expression as protected by the US Constitution and asserting my faith in conversations with people who disagree with me?

 ·         Where and when is the right place to assert citizen rights to religious liberty?

 ·         Where and when is the right place to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord?

·         How does my commitment to being a servant change the way I assert myself?
