Forget About You

Good morning! Phil. 2:1-4 Message If you've gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if His love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care-then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don't push your way to the front; don't sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. Oh how we need to adopt this attitude in our society today! Love, God's love in us will make a difference if we will step aside and put others first. The love of God flowing though you and I, in our work places, schools, community, and churches will change things. Don't get caught up in the negative things going on in our world, be part of the answer. Be willing to put effort into loving the unlovely. Put aside any personal agenda and allow God's love to dominate you so He can use you to reach others. Look for ways to lend a helping hand, to those in need, and you will be amazed at how God will use you to bring change, one person at a time.
