May They Quickly Forget Our Names

Al Martinez of 22nd Street Ministries shot the following video. We were our on Third Street Promenade, with the rest of the Third Street Heralds, Saturday afternoon.

As you watch the video, you will see that the camera was in a fixed position behind me. From a production standpoint, the video is not much to look at. But as I watched the video, seeing my back to the camera, it reminded me of something I stress to other evangelists, including the members of my team.

If we, as Christians, are faithful to proclaim the gospel on the streets then we should do so in such a way that those who listen quickly forget our names. Those who listen should forget our names, but never forget the name of Jesus. We must decrease so the King of kings and the Lord of lords may increase in the hearts and minds of hearers of the gospel.

May they quickly forget our names.
