In the marketing world we refer to public relations as PR. It is the professional maintenance of a favorable public image by a company, organization or a famous person. It is about creating a positive image of someone or something through storytelling. People go to school for PR. People get degrees in PR. People have careers in PR.
But did you know God has a Master’s Degree in PR too?
He has a Master’s in PRotection.
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you
and protect you from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:3
He has a Master’s in PRovision.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things
will be given to you as well.
He has a Master’s in PRevention.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment. You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.
He has a Master’s in PRomises.
Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
I’m sure we could add more right? PRoblem-solver. PRoducer. But here’s the thing… PR – public relations, is what we refer to as earned media. You don’t pay for it, but you do have to work to secure it. God’s PR is similar in that we don’t pay for it – he already paid the price. Our work, in His name, secures our place in heaven.
