Champion for the People

I heard a phrase today and it has stuck with me all afternoon.  It was used to describe one of the church staff members .  The phrase was “Champion for the People.”  My heart was instantly moved at this thought.  One of my favorite scripture verses about Jesus is where He is referred to as a Champion. (Isaiah 19:20 and Isaiah 49:25)  It just evokes so much emotion within me when I think about Christ in this manner and it makes me want to strive for the same in my life.

As I drove home today listening to Rowan laugh and coo in the back seat, my heart was full of joy and faith.  I asked God to make me a Champion for His people.  Someone that will stand up for justice and believe for the best in peoples lives.  I want to keep this phrase on the forefront on my mind this week and check my actions against its meaning.  I can’t settle for anything less now…the goal is before me. 🙂

What about you?  What do you think when you read that phrase?  How can we embody this as we lead and love our home, family, ministries and life?

  1. mmm, great statement to ponder!!!

    I think of all the times that I have so wanted to come to my own defense. People can be brutal to those in leadership. Yet I know that when I would just let God come to my defense, let Him be my champion – He would right the wrongs in such a way that makes me stand in awe.

    That is my first thought but I can tell that my mind will be pondering that phrase for awhile 🙂

    1. So true Gloria! It’s one of those phrases that you have to mull over for a while. I’m still pondering all that it entails in every are of my life. One thing is for sure…I’m so glad I serve a Victorious God!
