“You too, I urge you, rejoice in the same way and share your joy with me” (Philippians 2:18).
We are to rejoice in one another. We are to cherish the ways in which the Lord is working in our midst. We are to look to Him and be glad that He is working through us. Are you working toward these things? See this in stark contrast to the world in which we live and its selfish ways. Do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the One who gave His life to save you.
Lord, teach me the way of salvation. Guide me now and always in the way You have established so that I would walk the narrow road You have placed before me. Now and always, may I be guided by You and the way of everlasting life. Help me, Lord, to see through the temptations of this age in order to settle on the good and firm ground of Your grace and mercy. Teach me how to share the joy of salvation with others.
Lord Jesus, You did not count the cost, but gave up everything so that we who were in rebellion might be reconciled with and through You. Guide me, Lord, in order that I may now and always live in to this life of faith. Help me walk through those times where I look only at myself in order that I may rejoice with others in what You are doing through them. Lead me, Lord, and teach me how to always follow You. Amen.
