Philippians 2:1-11New International Version (NIV)

Imitating Christ’s Humility

2 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.

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

Uh oh. Should I serve those who "unserve" God? I don't think so. But I'd definitely serve those who trust Jesus. (I said "trust" and that says everything. It says more than "believe")

 

I have to admit that I felt awesome with the overflowing love and comfort from Jesus. From there, I was just talking so humilely to Him "What kind of art could express the love you are giving me, Lord, the love which you want me to show to the rest of the world? What kind of notes? What kind of harmony?". I felt so awesome. However, these didn't last long. I need to pray more.
