“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 2:5-8

TODAY’S WORD…

.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

.

Though He was God,
He did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
Instead, He gave up His divine privileges;
He took the humble position of a slave
and was born as a human being.
.

When He appeared in human form,
He humbled Himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

.

– Philippians 2:5-8 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus Christ gives us a wonderful example –

He chose the way of humility, acceptance,

and obedience to the Father

and so must we.

.

By reflecting on Jesus’ example,

we shall come to see all personal sacrifice and suffering

which may result from obeying the Lord’s Law

and from doing His will,

as a privilege – as a sign of salvation.

.

As St. Paul tells us:

we “have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ

but also the privilege of suffering for Him.” (Phil 1:29)

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

O Lord, my God,

fill me with Your Spirit, that I may always gladly do Your will…come what may!
