Verse of the Day: Philippians 2:4
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” – Philippians 2:4
This can be a very difficult idea to follow. The world today acts on the idea of “I take care of myself”. And there is nothing wrong with that. However, if we are to be like Christ who gave himself for all people; past, present and future, we must not focus on ourselves and what is necessarily best for us. We must show the world the love of Christ, so they will see His love and accept His grace and follow.
We, as Christians, have everything we need. We are taken care of, both now and for all eternity. It may not seem like it sometimes, but His promise in Mat 6:25-34 says as much. So let us go out and help the lost understand that God loves them and wants them to have the same guarantee. We must show them that God loves them, and we do as well. That their eternal salvation is so important to us, we will do what we can to help them secure it. That is showing true love to them and is exactly what we are called by God to do.
