Scripture: Philippians 2:1–2:11
God has brought us together for this specific time for His specific purposes. The witness of Jesus doesn’t happen only by individuals who share the gospel but through the collective efforts of the church. We call these efforts mission. It’s why we exist. But too often churches drift into a consumer mentality that prioritizes members perks over the mission to those in need. It’s not a new problem. Paul dealt with it too. His answer: We must live in the same way that Jesus died. Selfless. Sacrificial. Loving others more than ourselves. Do we have the courage to live like He died? If we do, then we will be a kingdom force to be reckoned with. If we don’t we will waste our lives.
