Going Along

The basic obedience and tasks are still there, but there is an added glow, a new knowledge and attitude, a new awareness of the rewards of the relationship.

Meditation Thought: “Have this mind among yourselves, which you have in Christ Jesus… who emptied himself, taking the form of a servant..” (Philippians 2:5,7)

“Emptied himself” – that the Father would fill him, that the Father’s works would be done. I must empty myself of the accumulation of pre-knowledge of Christ trivia and evil and selfishness and cares, so that the Father’s will and works can flow into me.

What better way to purge these things than to lose myself in service and care (caring!) for others – and as there is more room for God within me, the caring and loving, and blessing intensifies, magnifies as my mind and my body become a servant to Him, obedient to Him. And as we go along in the relationship, it becomes one of realization of a loving child serving a loving Father blessing His beloved child; the basic obedience and tasks are still there, but there is an added glow, a new knowledge and attitude, a new awareness of the rewards of the relationship.
