Weekly Dose of Scripture 1/23/23

Hey guys! I’m a little late with this one, since homework piled up already! Not only that, but I also spent the majority of the day at church, and then we also celebrated my mom’s birthday. A lot in one day pretty much! But it’s time for the verse, and this time I am going to take it from the service at my church yesterday because it was so good. Check it out!

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Himself the form of a servant, and was in the fashion of men. – Philipians 2:5-7

Think about it. Jesus is a part of the Trinity. He is God. Yet, He came to earth in the form of a man to serve us. If the Creator of the universe can do this, why should we hold back from serving others? Jesus was modeling how we are to live. We should help those in need. We should serve our community, our church, our family and friends. We are to live as Jesus did. We should never do it with personal gain in mind, which is unfortunately very common in today’s society. Put aside what you might be able to get in return for helping someone and find ways that you can serve like Jesus did.

I hope this encourages you to be a servant to others! We are here to spread the Gospel, and one of the ways we can do this is model the behavior of Christ.

God bless y’all and have a wonderful week!
