Key Verse: Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus… —Philippians 2:5
We get angry when our rights are violated. That’s why these verses are so crazy! The Creator and Sustainer of the universe laid down all His rights for us. He sacrificed everything so we could be reconciled to Him. As His followers, Jesus is calling us to lay down all of our rights, all of our preferences, and all of our comforts and ask, “what are You calling me to sacrifice today?” Will you take that risk? Will you consider someone’s salvation as more important than your rights today? Will you let Jesus break you out of your comfort zone and use you in ways you can’t even begin to imagine?
Prayer: Jesus thank You for sacrificing everything for me. Thank You for saving me. Will You please show me how I can sacrifice for someone today? I want them to encounter Your love in me. Thank You that their salvation is more important than my rights.
