Two Christs: We've Got It Backwards

We need to preach the resurrected, triumphant, and reigning Christ, and then live like the humble, incarnate, serving Christ. Ministry should be done with a towel and wash basin.

Too many Christian ministries today seem to preach Christ as servant (Jesus my butler, who serves me and meets my needs) while the preachers live like kings. Ministry should not be done from mansions and private jets.

I think we've got it backwards.
