Have you ever had a #boss who would stop what they were doing to accomplish one of the many things they asked you to do?  It is at first, embarrassing.  But, then you catch on to what their priorities are.  And, if you are wise, you make it your priority.  How much more so, should we copy Jesus Christ, being God and coming down to our level and showing us what to do?  Those of us who are in Christ, should constantly strive to be more like our Lord and Savior.  That means humbling ourselves and serving others.  Where and who was Jesus before He came here?  Why and how did Christ come down to us?  Jesus Christ was perfectly obedient His whole life.  To where did that obedience lead?

#Love #unites, #hate divides.  Just look at the #news and #political discourse right now for proof.  You are #loved.  How can I say that without having met you?  Because the #Bible tells us so.  We are all given the ability to love others as well.  But left to our own desires we tend to love others that look like us, act like us, believe what we believe, or who can do something for us.  God has a different idea about how we should love, not selfishly but putting others first.  By serving others with love, we create unity in the church.  By serving the community with love, we bring others into the fellowship of Believers.  What encouraging factors does Paul give us to motivate this love that unites?  What is the right kind of love and how do we practice that?  What does humility have to do with loving others?  What is humility and what is it not?  Near the end Brother Tommy mentions the order that our priorities should take.  Take the first letter of each priority and it spells what you get when you do it right (J-O-Y).

The next time someone tells you #God wants you to be #healthy and #wealthy, ask yourself how health and wealthy were #Jesus Christ and His disciples?  Great sales pitch, right?  The Christian life is a struggle and the rewards do not get fully realized here and now.  The rights and privileges of wherever you live now cannot compare to what waits the Christian in Heaven.  How is your attitude and behavior?  Is it right and is it consistent?  Are we united with the rest of the Body of Christ?  Who or what are our adversaries as those who follow Christ?  What do attacks say about our status?  Can we ever see adversity as a privilege?  If I gave you a present, you would thank me.  Wouldn’t you?  God has given you some things that i know you haven’t thanked Him for yet.
