We do not preach ourselves,
but Jesus Christ as Lord.
—2 Corinthians 4:5
Christopher Locke trolls for discarded instruments—trumpets, trombones, and French horns—which he fashions into amplifiers for iPhones and iPads, transforming them into speakers that resemble the phonographs of the late 1800s.
Locke says music played through his AnalogTelePhonographers has a “cleaner, richer, deeper sound” than what you get from the small speakers in digital devices.
The speaker is not the music; it only transmits the music.
So it is with us—we only transmit the message: “Our Message is not about ourselves; we’re proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers” (2 Cor 4:5 MSG).
We convey the message by word—and by life. William Barclay wrote: “Even the man with no gift of words can teach by living in such a way that in him men see the reflection of the Master.”
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you.
