Less is More
Spreading The Truth One Byte At A Time
By Ron Bender© 2008, 2013
Every pastor, leader, and caregiver tries to do too much.
For us and the people around us
it’s the source of much anxiety and conflict —
Our main job is to remember that
So make space
Jesus is speaking in
“More of Jesus…
The Risen Christ is in our Midst
So often I have tried to do more for God and sadly it’s meant more of Ron and less of Jesus.
I’ve learned that I need to keep reminding myself that the greatest opportunity for me and for those who are around me is to appreciate that it is all about Jesus not about me. Its not my rules, my authority, my respect, but only Jesus who shines like the sun. In him are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge. He alone can multiply fishes and loaves and open the ears of the deaf. Who am I "really" compared to Him
When you share God’s Word to others step aside and allow the Lord to be the one that preaches to those who gather. He’ll speak through you and remember they are His words not yours. Since people will hear God best in the spaces between the words you speak leave some quiet pauses for people to appreciate God with you. If your heart is adoring Jesus then you won’t try to say too much and all the people around you will be drawn in to worship God with you.
Preachers aren’t the only ones who share the Word of the Lord with others — all of Christ-followers are his ambassadors who represent him. Whenever you care for others rely on Jesus to be the Wonderful Counselor. In all your meetings ask Jesus to set the agenda, lead the discussion, and direct the decision-making. In your kitchen whenever you prepare a meal pray for Jesus to nourish your family and guests with his heavenly manna.
Pray with me. Breathe in, “More of Jesus…” Breathe out, “Less of me…”
“More of Jesus… Less of me…”
Pray this as you do what you’re doing and everyone you meet will behold Jesus’ smile.
