August 16th 2016 – Spiritually Concerned and Caring for One Another

“Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification.” (Romans 15:2)

Be honest. How often do you think about others ahead of yourself? If you are completely honest, your answer is probably, “Not often.” Jesus, in His ministry, was completely others centered. Everything He spoke and did was for the edification of others. The world we live in is completely focused on ‘self’, and Christians have bought into it. Jesus, on the other hand, said:

(Mark 8:35) “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.”

Jesus should be our model for living. We should be like Jesus and be ‘others centered’ and ‘others focused’. We should give our lives away. It is the key to life and what Jesus told us to do. Like a lost key, many Christians will look past it without picking it up. If the church at large would live out what we say we believe, this world would be a different place and people would be clamoring for Jesus. Is Jesus your model for living? What do you need to change in your life to accurately portray a life sold out for Jesus?

“We should be spiritually concerned and caring with one another.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Loving me. Thank You for looking past my faults and failures and giving Your life away for me. Lord, I know sometimes I am too preoccupied with ‘self’, and I am sorry. Help me to be a walking testimony of Your Truth so ‘others’ can know the grace, peace, comfort and hope I have found in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen
