Tell the Story: a Reflection on Psalm 35:19-28, Ephesians 3:14-20, Titus 1:1-16 and Luke 1:1-25
My enemies conceive deceitful words and use them against me. The deceit manifests itself in the image of righteousness, but clearly lacks the substance of it. God strengthens me in my inner being, all the while the self-righteous do all they can to diminish my influence and disparage my name. I must continue to “learn” a firm grasp of God’s Word. Through it all, I desire to tell the story of Jesus Christ the Messiah. For advancing the Kingdom of God is not about me, but about the Savior.
