Sent and Standing

We live in a culture that is flooded with religious noise. Many people are deaf to Christ's story in part because of the many men and women that speak for him. Our challenge it to live out the hope of Christ with compelling sincerity. We need to stand in his presence before we go to do his work. Here are a couple of verses that encourage this -

I did not send the prophets,
yet they ran;
I did not speak to them,
yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in my council,
then they would have
procliamed my words to
my people,
and they would have turned
them from their evil way,
and from the evil of their doings.
Jeremiah 23:21-22

For we are not peddlers of God's word like so many; but in Christ we speak as persons of sincerity, as persons sent from God and standing in his presence. II Corinthians 3:17
