What are You Known for?

In Jesus’ public ministry He was known for a lot of things: performing miracles, teaching crowds, and rising to the challenge of the religious leaders. He was also known for caring for people that those same leaders considered beneath them: tax collectors, sinners, women, and those who were poor, hurting, and outcast. God’s love and purpose defined the scope of His life and ministry.

What are you known for?

Matthew 9:10-11, “While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, ‘Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?'”

Jesus, I want my relationship with You to define my life and my leadership. Search my heart. Root out worldly longings and thinking. I want increasingly to be known as someone who loves lives and leads like You. In Your name, Amen.
