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?
