There is a curious sort of delegation of responsibility between Jesus and his disciples. We follow Him, we obey His commands, but before God we seek no credit for ourselves, and all is done to the glory of Jesus our Christ.

This, I admit, is a view of only one facet of our discipleship and devotion. However, as Paul has said so well, “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22) But in this instance I firmly believe that all are called to be witnesses, by word, and by example of love to the grace and love of God our Father.
