THANKFUL FOR FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS

Philippians 2:19-3:3

 

One of the coolest things I find about the Apostle Paul is not just how he loves the Lord, but also how he loves his co-laborers in Christ. In this passage we see Paul refer to Timothy affectionately as a son, and Epaphroditus as a brother, co-worker, and fellow soldier. The bonds between these servants of Jesus have been forged in the service of Christ together. How amazing it is to serve the King alongside others who love Jesus and also love you. Is there anyone that you serve Jesus alongside that you love like family? Is there anyone that you’ve personally invested in that you see bearing fruit for the Lord? Maybe there is a fellow soldier in the Lord that has made great personal sacrifice to help care for your needs. Take a moment today to thank the Lord for the fellow brothers and sisters that have been placed in your life. Then take a moment to thank them too!

LIFE IS HARD, BUT KINGDOM BUILDING IS WORTH IT!

This has been a difficult week…and it’s only Tuesday! The fact is, life is hard. I know I’m not telling you anything that you haven’t also experienced. But if you, like many of us, are temped to wallow in self-pity, I encourage you to read 2 Corinthians 11:21-33. I really can’t imagine enduring the physical torture that Paul endured, but I know that in order for him to persevere, he must have really believed in his mission. Paul had a clear Kingdom-building, disciple-making passion. He had a vision for seeing Christ exalted, and that outweighed any losses or gains that he experienced, propelling him forward in times of trial.

 

So my question is, what drives you forward in times of trial? May it be for all of us to know Jesus and to live to make Him known!
