The Humble Servant


I chose the shoe-shine man in prayer as an image to convey the discovery of Christ in our lives regardless of our occupation. How spirit filled our lives can become through Christ.


He is not shining shoes, he is expressing a Christ-like service to others through the indwelling spirit of humility (John 13: 14-14). This example shows us that we need to be in humble submission to God in order to maintain a spirit-filled heart. There are no shoe-shine implements visible only foot-washing items. The empty chair awaits you to be a disciple of Christ.
