1 Corinthians 15:1-2
15 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
Christianity is not really a position of prestige. Yet is it amazing how many Christians think it is a status that shows them higher than others. The gospel that Paul preached was Christ crucified - the man who had everything yet gave it all up to serve. That is the gospel, not whatever one might "get" for being a Christian.
Do you see your faith in Christ as prestigious or humbling? Why or why not?
O God, that I might follow your Son's footsteps forever. Amen.
