STAND BEFORE THE CROSS

“Don’t blow your own horn! If you want to start a big movement, then go ahead and make a big splash; if you want to be renowned, then go ahead and sound off. But if you want to see God’s kingdom advance, stand before the cross and be quiet. God’s kingdom will not come into being by our efforts; only God can bring about his reign.” (Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt)

A response, perhaps, to the question in the previous posting ‘where do deacons stand?’
