I was reading recently in Philippians and was so encouraged and excited, spurred on, challenged, and so many things as I read these verses.
So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I don't have to wonder if God is okay with me comparing and me wanting to be first.
He isn't okay with it and He doesn't want me to seek firstness.
I love the Gospel so much that I want to be changed. I want to be stretched. I never ever simply want to sit back and let things happen.
What is the Gospel pushing you forward into, or pulling you out of? I can't be the only one feeling these things. Share your story with me below or put a link in the comments to something you've written about being changed by the Gospel.
