When Jesus calls the twelve and sends them out, He makes them like Himself – ambassadors of God. Jesus was eminently humble; it was never about Him. So, too, the most effective disciples know how to stay out of the way.

Christian discipleship is all about instrumentality. Being a follower is the pre-requisite to Christian leadership. The point is always God’s love.

Dear Jesus, may I be a humble shepherd just like You. May I be an instrument of God’s love and peace.
