Incarnational Ministry

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14 NIV).

I want my life to be like Jesus.

That means I am going to have to learn how to leave my comfort zone behind and sacrifice my wants. I need to enter the strange, confusing, and sometimes scary world outside the the bounds of where good church people feel comfortable.

Incarnational living. Incarnational ministry.

  • I want my life to be like Jesus, but I am so comfortable in good places.
  • I want my life to be like Jesus, but I am so comfortable with good people.
  • I want my life to be like Jesus, but I am so comfortable with good things.
  • I want my life to be like Jesus, but I am so comfortable playing it safe.

Jesus left heaven, came to earth, and took on a body of flesh and blood.

God,

Help me get out of my comfort zone.

Help me learn what incarnational living is all about.

In Jesus’ name,

AMEN.
