Good Morning

Philippians 2:5-8
Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God,
thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation,
and took upon him the form of a servant,
and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself,
and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross.

Jesus came to serve.
He let a woman in Samaria interrupt his rest,
a woman in adultery interrupt his sermon,
a woman with a disease interrupt his plans, and
one with remorse interrupt his meal.
Though none of the apostles washed his feet,
he washed theirs.
Though none of the soldiers at the cross begged for mercy,
he extended it.
And though his followers skedaddled like scared rabbits on Thursday,
he came looking for them on Easter Sunday
The resurrected King ascended to heaven only after he’d spent
forty day with his friends—
teaching then, encouraging them. . . serving them.
Why?
It’s what he came to do
He came to serve.

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
