Lift up Jesus.

"Our apathy toward the mission of God is not because of lack of knowing what to do. It is our blindness to his glory and grace that keeps us satisfied with nominal Christianity. If you want to light a fire under your church for the mission, don't simply trot out your goals; lift up Jesus." -Brad House

Oh, may we see His glory. & may we, as Christ’s Bride, be so bold as to follow in the footsteps of our Savior... no matter the cost, no matter the time, no matter the social consequences. Throwing aside all selfish ambitions, may God’s people identify with the poor, marginalized, & oppressed. & through that may we see the poverty of our own hearts. 

Above all, may we lift up Jesus.
