Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
Can I honestly say I have this verse under control? No I cant’. I have to work on this area very hard. I have the flesh working in me and it does not want to put others before myself and I need to pray to God that I learn how to love others more than myself.
Please God on the most high help me to love others as you love us.
I want desperately to love others more than myself but this sin that is living in me gets in my way and takes over and before I realize it I am looking at my self and ignoring others.
I know I need your help in this area and pray for your help.
I really need to look at this verse and read this chapter and get a hold on how I should be living this Christian life.
I ask Christ to teach me to have the same mindset as he did when he walked on this earth. He put everyone before himself. He loved everyone equally and showed no favoritism.
Help me to learn how to be a better servant.
Help me to learn how to be obedient.
Help me to have fear and trembling in my soul for your knowledge and truth.
Help me to actually be a sacrifice and give myself to you and others.
I know that I need to work much harder in this area heavenly father and I ask you to help me put others before myself.
Today I will meditate on these scriptures:
Worship the LORD with reverence And rejoice with trembling.
Teach me to rejoice and put others before myself. Teach me to love others on a deeper level.
not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
Teach me to work for the kingdom of God with diligence and have a fire to learn how to Love as you Love.
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other You cannot serve God and wealth.
I always try very hard to connect with the one and true God through your son and I love you and follow your teaching. I ask for wisdom on my knees to follow the way of truth and grace.
There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him;
So heavenly father let me know that there will be a day that all suffering and all pain will be forever gone. Praise your holy name………….
Let me hang on to this very fact, that you will reign in my life forever and forever and your kingdom will have no end.
I look forward to the day I will be like your original plan for me.
Today help me to love others.
