Philippians 2:2 Devotional

Philippians 2:2 Devotional

August 23, 2019

"Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose." Philippians 2:1-2 (NLT)

I long for this kind of community, working together in one spirit, mind, and purpose.

This stems out of encouragement belonging to Jesus, comfort in his love, a sweet bond in the Spirit, and a tenderness and compassion from being close to Him.

Only when we lean in to Jesus can our community hold together in unity.

Lord Jesus, we want this unity in our communities of faith. Draw us closer to you and fill each of us to overflowing with your love and tenderness. Help us to see each other with your eyes. Guide our work to be one in spirit and purpose

In the moments I really stop and take my struggles to the Lord and lift my heart and mind to Him and who He is...then for more than a moment I feel the peace wash over me, reassure me that it will all be okay, that He's bigger than my pile of dishes and my lack of momentum. He will sustain me through the day. Practicing his presence as many moments as I can is the goal (I am not so good at it lately), but that is where peace resides, in constant conversation with Jesus.
