《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.” (Php 2:5)
Meditation one: Is it easy to have the same mindset in a Church? It is not easy. Unification is not easy when congregations have the natural difference such as nationalities, ethnics, colors, cultures, and languages. Each individual’s gifts, personalities, thoughts, methodologies, and experiences have made it even harder. Whom should we listen to? Whose heart should we be with? Thanks to the Lord, He has broken down all the differences among us on the cross. If we are willing to follow Christ’s humility and truly to “have the same mindset as Christ Jesus “, then unification in Christ is possible.
Meditation two: How a Church can “have the same mindset as Christ Jesus”? By taking Christ’s heart as the heart, taking Christ’s view as the view, taking Christ’s spirit as the spirit, and taking Jesus Christ as the joint or meeting point of the Church, then the Church will naturally move toward the direction and goal of unification. Satan’s first priority today is to attempt to destroy the Church, and it is our responsibility to wake up and pray for the Church. Let us make sure that we give diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Prayer: Dear Abba Father, Thank You for setting the example of “keeping the unity” through the unification of trinity. In order to testify the “unity” of a Church in this world, please help me, let me recognize my own responsibilities first, and learn to be humble, to empty myself, and to obey. I am willing to put aside my own opinions, prejudices, and truly to have the same mindset as You. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
