Bringing the gospel causes suffering
Do you bring the gospel across the office?
Do you bleed from embarrassment?
Christ’s cross is for propitiation

What do want to be in life? To be pleasing to Christ.
Deacon means commoner. Waiter. Server.
Slave means commonness
We are called to suffer for the gospel.
