Good morning everyone: Thank you Lord for Your love, for Your grace, please teach us to not judge or condemn but to forgive and love just as You forgive and love us – that our love for each other brings glory to Your name. Amen.
PHILIPPIANS 2:3-11
(Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, 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.)
Jesus gave up his divine privileges, came and lived as a human, he put himself at the lowest – a slave, knowing that he would be humiliated, stripped naked, beaten, spat upon, laughed at, ridiculed and nailed to a cross. That he would die this awful death like a common criminal for you, to pay your debt, out of pure love for you, who ever you are, what ever awful sin you have committed, Jesus died, that you might be saved. And he was risen from the dead and God elevated to the highest, honour and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the the earth. Jesus did all this to give each and every one of us the opportunity of salvation. We as Christians should have the same attitude as Jesus, and not live out of selfish ambition but to regard every one as above ourselves, sharing the Good News and supporting and encouraging each other in our walk with God, out of love. For to live, is to live for Christ, and dying is even better. (PHILIPPIANS 1:21) Since we have the confident hope that we will receive God’s promise of eternal life in paradise heaven and God will live amongst his people and we will be with our God forever. Paul lived for Christ, he saw it a privilege to serve and suffer for God, nothing could stop him preaching the Good News and what ever he faced, he remained positive, full of joy because no circumstance or person could stop him doing what loved – serving Christ, sharing the Good News and he had God’s peace with him always because he knew that the best was yet to come, that at the right time he would dwell with Jesus Christ forever and the pain and suffering will be gone. Jesus gave his life for you, are you ready to give your life for Christ? God bless you all. Glory be to God forever and ever. Amen
