Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: 2 Peter 1:1
In Christ we are all on a level playing field. What I mean by that is no one person is more important than another. God has gifted speakers, teachers, and preachers. But He also has gifted compassionate servants, administrators, and helpers. Because their giftings are behind the scenes, the compassionate types are often overlooked and forgotten. Even Operation Mobilization founder George Verwer said that for every one visionary leader, it takes dozens of people to clean up after him. Visionaries tend to be wrecking balls who create havoc and a few good ideas along the way. It also takes many people to implement the vision whilst the visionary hops onto the next vision.
So, here’s to the mellow, hard-working, compassionate men and women who never want to make a name for themselves, but without whom nothing would get done in the kingdom.
The Lord Bless and Keep You. The Lord Make His Face Shine Upon You. And give you peace.
