What a bold and profound statement by the late Count Zinzendorf. I wonder how much more we, as Christians, would accomplish if we grasped the power of this thought. It’s the thought that we lay it all on the line for Jesus expecting nothing in return. We give expecting nothing—not a legacy, not a memorial remembering all the great things I or you accomplished, etc.
In the end, we were created to make Jesus famous. We were created to make sure He is not forgotten. This doesn’t mean that what we accomplish for Jesus is for nothing. It just means what we accomplish is not for our personal benefit or gain.
I want to make a huge difference for the kingdom of God. I want to be a part of something that impacts as many people as possible. I want to be a part of something that’s not concerned about “what’s in it for me?”
What say you?
