Slaves must obey their master and do their best to please them. . . They must show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. Then they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way.
This was the challenge Michael Gott gave at our first team devotion in Lviv, Ukraine on July 21. It is the reason that 18 people from 6 different states traveled to Lviv, Ukraine to participate in an English language evangelism event. Because the New Testament says we are slaves of Jesus Christ, we want to "make the teachings about God our Savior attractive" – to those who may not be aware of their need for a personal relationship with God through Jesus. Many in Ukraine are trusting in their relationship to a church organization to make them OK with God.
