The Kitchen Table Philippians Day 8
So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Philippians 2:1-2
“So, if…” That’s always the question and it should be. So, if you’re a real believer than what? This relationship isn’t just about religion, it’s about being real. And Paul goes on to say, if there is encouragement (partnership) in Jesus, it will show. There will be a persuasion, a passion, a partnership with the Holy Spirit that you just can’t miss. Sure, we’re all growing in this but it should show up. This is not about mere words, it’s about a want, a walk, a work with Jesus and His church. If we have the Spirit of Christ, we will share the wants, walk and work of Christ and it will be beautiful.
