Philippians 2:1-4 (vs.1,2)
1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,
2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded,having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion & sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord & of one mind.
Paul wrote this letter from a Roman prison. He was shackled & restrained; very uncomfortable & restricted condition in the prison. But he urged the Christians to use every opportunity to freely encourage, console, share, show compassion & sympathy.
The Circuit Breaker may be restrictive to me in many ways, but it is nothing like being confined to a prison. May I have this spirit that Paul had to use every opportunity available to reach out to someone who needs the love & grace of Jesus. I can pray, I can write, I call, I can give, I can use technology to connect with people across the world.
Lord, use me today, as Your hands & feet, to bring your love, grace & joy to someone who needs your touch.
