Joy in imitation

Today at church we took the whole section from 2:1-18, looking at how Paul describes the attitude of Jesus and how we should hare that same attitude. As it was read I couldn't help but be moved again by the challenge of what Paul says. The words and phrases cut deeply into our own selfishness and complacency.

In the first four verses alone there are ten things worthy of reflection.

Our conclusion in a single sentence was simply this: Honour Christ that Christ might be honoured. In other words, live a life that honours Jesus in every way in order that others might honour him on account of the transformation they see in your life.

If only we would stop and ask ourselves, "Does this action I'm about to take, or this path I'm about to follow honour Christ?" Maybe then we'd make better choices.
