Not about ME!



This one sacks me in the face this morning. It seems most of us have a little look out for self first in us. That is not what the Word tells us though:

Philippians 2:3
3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

We are taught and we teach our kids they are above all, number one, not like so and so. This is the teaching of the world! We are to teach we are all equal and that we are to serve others. To humble ourselves before others and put them first, just like Jesus did! Hmmmm do we do this? Not on occasions but everyday??? As followers of Christ it is not an option it is to be out lifestyle. 

I got work to do on this, how about you?

Get to where God has told you to Go! 9-2-15

Worthy???



Wow you talk about a smack in the face when I read this verse!!! Am I ever worthy?

Philippians 1:27
27 Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel,

Jesus died for us and He deserves our all for Him. We are only worthy because His shed blood made us worthy. Nothing on our own makes us worthy. That being said we should strive every day to give our all for him...sharing the gospel, loving others, meeting needs, unity among God's people, and being obedient in every area of our lives. 

So I ask this morning, is your conduct worthy of the gospel of Christ? Very heavy question!

Out of order! 8-31-15

Is Jesus your everything?



Does this verse describe your feelings about your faith in Jesus?

Philippians 1:21 
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

We all need to do some honest evaluation here. Is Jesus the most important in your life? If I am being honest I would say at times yes and at times no. I choose other things than Jesus at times and I get so disappointed in myself! Thank goodness for the abundant grace of God huh? When I do this and the Holy Spirit brings it to my attention them I strive not to do it again but to always serve my King and die to my own selfish desires! It is a minute by minute battle!

Join me in selling out and giving our all for our Lord Jesus! He is WORTHY!!!
