It's August 28; Good Morning Union

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”          Philippians 2:5

So, there’s the goal- have the same attitude of Jesus. And what was that “attitude?”

1.            “…In the very nature of God;

2.            Took on the very nature of man;

3.            Gave His life for us;

4.            Then GOD highly exalted Him”

He had it all; He gave it all away; and then God gave it all back to Him… and then some! Any questions?

I’m not Jesus, but THAT fact probably doesn’t come as any surprise to you!! But I can still use the “attitude of Jesus” as my model. He focused, as I want to focus, not on what He had, but what He did with what He had to care about and serve others- the most basic description of Christianity or being a follower of Christ- to be other-centered. And that is one of the greatest things I can do with my desire to be a Christ-follower. I’ll let God decide how or when He know is best to “exalt” ME, if at all. In the meantime I want to focus on being like Him- setting self aside enough to care about others. That’s the Spirit of God’s way; that’s the Union Spirit as well! I wonder what I can do today to “be like Jesus?”

Have a great day being like Jesus,

Pastor Rich
