Carry Your Crown Campaign
Carry Your Crown is a campaign promoting and encouraging people to boldly serve their generation in their personal life for the glory of God. The goal is for people from different nationalities, ethnicities, ages, occupations, fields of vocation, and geographic locations to acquire the MFBI towel, take pictures of themselves proudly holding their towels in their daily life and send it back to us! We want to share with the world that God has his remnant hidden yet functioning in every color, every nation, every occupation, etc. and that above all, we are ultimately about our Father’s Business!
This initiative is important because nowadays service is usually seen as act, not a posture. Many desire the work of service but not the identity and mindset of a servant. Why? That calls for one to shift from doing to being, and the burden (really honor) "being" is a sacrifice that many will not take because there is no immediate glory in living such a life and the few who choose to do so, usually do it in vain. However, we serve a God “who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” - Philippians 2:6-11. Many desire to glorify God the Father, but do not want to follow the steps of Jesus, the Son of God, our example. He taught us that “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them” - John 13:14-17.We must follow suit and desire to grab our towel more than a platform. The way up is indeed the way down.
I want to help change the narrative of serving people by highlighting that the King of Kings came in such a form, proudly, and lived such a life both publicly and privately. A towel was his symbolic crown. Why? “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” - Matthew 23:11. Earthly power corrupts the best of us and many times, we subtly allow it because we like the way it makes us feel on the inside. Serving people is beneath many of us because the identity of a servant is not in us. Carrying this towel reminds us that before we are artists, doctors, engineers, lawyers, managers, cashiers, etc., we are servants and representatives of the most high God. We are called to serve by a master who demonstrated how far he was willing to go to honor his Father in every situation while fulfilling his purpose.
A crown symbolizes majesty, power, and honor. The one who held (and still holds it) carried his towel as a badge of honor. Though people didn’t always understand, applaud or accept it, the Father did, multiple times, and made him to be the head over the Church. The towel reminds us that we are no greater than our master, that we cannot impact who we are afraid to touch, and that even we have dirt on our feet and need to wash each others feet as well as receive it. We are a part of something bigger and must take the towel (the baton) from Christ. The towel is not about credit, it is about courage. It is not about reputation, it is about representation. It is not about our privilege, it is about demonstrating his posture in culture. John 3:30 “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
There is no competition here in the Kingdom. Matter of fact, this is where it comes to die. There is no jealousy, comparison, or envy here. No matter what occupation you have in your earthly culture, there is only one job opening in the heavenly culture, in My Father’s Business, and it is a servant. So, grab your towel and wear it proudly! Your towel in your hand will draw attention to your why. Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” As always, Be about Business, Honor the Father, and Join the Family!
