Philippians chapter 2. Being Humble.

Hello everyone!

What this chapter tells us is hard to do without the help of JESUS. Sometimes I will pick a few verses from one chapter. But when I was reading this chapter this morning, I saw something that I was talking about to a good friend. It was in Philippians chapter 2. Being like-minded and being on one accord. Being humble. Dealing with grumbling.

It is easy to see other brother and sisters to slip at these things. But when it comes to us doing this we may be unaware of it and may not want to admit it! This is why we need to be around other brother and sisters of Christ JESUS. Those in the body of Christ. To keep us in check in a loving and GODLY way.

Philippians 2:1

1.If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

2.Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

3.Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

4.Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

5.Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

6.Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7.But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

8.And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9.Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

10.That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11.And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

12.Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13.For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15.That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16.Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

17.Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

18.For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.

19.But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.

20.For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.

21.For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.

22.But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.

23.Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.

24.But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.

25.Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.

26.For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick.

27.For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.

28.I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.

29Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such in reputation:

30.Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.

“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,”

King James Version (KJV)

Let us continue to spread the Gospel of JESUS in HIS way and continue with fellowshipping. For there are fewer and fewer people who are believers these days. And more and more who are not and pretend to be believers when they are fake. Only have supper with those who believe, meaning do not congregate with them for their eyes are not on the LORD and they will distract you from GOD.

They will not want to hear you praise GOD at all. They will prefer to praise a rich lost soul whom is being devilish first. Lost souls and saved souls do not mix at all.

Stay in prayer and remember what our beloved FATHER GOD has written in HIS word. Accept JESUS as savior. Learn about the HOLY Trinity. GOD the FATHER, GOD the son and the HOLY Ghost!.

Have a blessed day, be safe!

Peace and blessings!

JESUS, parents, family and friends in that order.

JESUS GOD the son ,lived by our GOD the FATHER’S moral code. It is written in the Holy Bible.

List the people you admire and look to for advice…

I start off with JESUS because HE walked the face of the earth as a man. He was a good example as to how all mankind needs to live to get into heaven.

Proverbs Chapter 3

5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

My parents because they led me into the direction as a believer in GOD that I am living today.

My husband and soul mate. We each will confide in each other and give advice. So when we need to pray over any situation, we can do this together. Even though I can pray over things with the other people I mentioned, this is different because we are one.

My elder relatives and elder church members including a good Pastor. They have learned wisdom from the life they have lived. They can warn you about things so that you will not get hurt or suffer the same mistakes they have made. Plus give you some scripture when you need it.

My family and close friends. Sometimes you may want to get advice from someone who is closer in age who can also tell you advice that maybe an elder will not know such as to what computer to buy or software to use for it.

Good trusted co-workers. When you are at work and you need to get a task done, and need some information about this new task you are first learning to do.

Peace and blessings, be safe!
