Pristine Grace

God's Servants Do Not Promote Themselves

God's Servants Do Not Promote Themselves

"For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake." - 2 Corinthians 4:5

    No work is so great, no labor is so noble, no burden is so heavy, no honor is so humbling — as preaching the gospel of the grace of God to eternity bound sinners!

    Let every man called of God to preach the Gospel, disentangle himself from the affairs of this world with determined consecration to Christ and His Gospel and His Church, addicting himself to prayer, study and preaching.

    God's servants do not promote themselves, their ministry, or their church. They promote Christ, His Gospel, and His Kingdom. The man who promotes himself — serves no one but himself!
