living as Jesus lived

Rodin, “Crucifixion”

Passion Sunday (April 1, 2007)
Philippians 2:5-11

Despite being “in very nature God” (v. 5) Jesus layed down his rights and privileges so that we might have new life. The Apostle Paul’s intention here is that we would be compelled to live likewise given our understanding and appreciation for what Christ has done for us.

Consider the needs of others today. Who in your life is most needy at the moment? What is one act you could take today to respond to their need in a way that reflects the gospel of grace and peace? Seize the day, for an adventure of grace awaits you.
