Tuesday Morning Recap

Gentlemen,

What a blessing to have our brother Sam back with us! Prayer works!

Tuesday we continued our discussion of ‘Portions from Philippians’

Grady noted that the theme of humility emerged from this weeks devotionals.

“Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:8

Jesus calls us to be servant leaders. We are to serve others as Christ did when He walked the earth.

We discussed ways we can be better about serving others. We agreed that true servant leadership is impossible without staying focused on Christ. Daily quiet times are critical in keeping a proper focus.

We also agreed with Alleyne who wrote “The temptation for self-exaltation is strong in us. Jesus shows us the opposite. He gave up all power in the universe to be used only as the Father directed. we are asked to exchange our puny power for the power that raised Jesus and can now operate in and through us. That power is seen in servant leadership. We can’t be humble until we are overcome by the reality of the God of this universe coming to earth as a servant leader.” p 37

See you Tuesday.

John
