Paul asserts that striving for what he calls "the mind of Christ," the life of humble, peaceful, service to others, will lead to greater unity among humanity. Serving others selflessly will encourage love, tenderness, compassion, like-mindedness, and humility. In an age where passenger flights are diverted and interrupted because people are fighting for "their right" to recline their seat ... or to block its ability to recline, it seems this alternative approach might well be worth a try.
Paul also states, if we decide to try, God will work with us, giving us the will to do wonderful things that must be done, the things that will help those who are struggling in this life and are "for God's good pleasure." With help like that, how can we not try?
Come join us on Sunday at Lansdowne Baptist Church and see what God is doing among us. You will be more than welcome.
