2The first comparison that we can analyze between Jesus’ ministries and chaplain ministry is incarnational. Incarnational is the doctrine that the second person of the Trinity assumed human form in the person of Jesus Christ and is completely both God and man0. A central ideal behind incarnational ministry is to live the good new rather than preach the good news. Incarnational ministry can also mean ministry that crosses cultural barriers to be an embodied presence to people in need0. At other times it is used to talk about culturally relevant analogies for the gospel0. The idea of incarnation is covered in the Book of John, “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”0A recent popular trend was the catchphrase “what would Jesus do” (WWJD) and is a reminder to us to be Christ like. We are to be followers and learners of Jesus and his ministries. By doing so, we will be able to show and communicate his love to the world. The idea of living God’s word by striving to be Christ like is a great example of how we can minister to others through actions. This is very relevant to how a chaplain must conduct himself at all times because not only is it the right thing to do as a Christian but also to be an example to the men and women a chaplain serves with.
