“...if we go around serving Jesus with capes, they eventually get snagged on something — our pride; other people’s feelings; people’s perceptions of those who follow God. Our capes get in the way. Goff reminds us that Jesus never wore a cape. Jesus hardly ever talked about the way he loved people. He just did it. All that mattered to him was that God knew it. When we lose the cape, we don’t get confused about what our purpose is, which is to love. All our energy is channeled into doing great things for God and loving the world like crazy (Goff). Let’s lose the cape as Christians and just go out and share the light and love of Jesus. When we serve Jesus without a cape people will want to know more about Jesus. This Advent season let us put on the armor of light and draw people to the light of the world.” From Chapter One
