Think Like Jesus

Humility is a defining characteristic of Christ, yet a dying characteristic of Christians. The example of Jesus is not an easy one to follow. It even seems un-American. God became man. The King of Kings became a servant. The Prince of Peace endured terrible pain and suffering. The Author of Life chose to die. Why did He do all of this? For us. Jesus lived and died for the sake of others. He put others before Himself, and we must follow His example. We must choose to put others first. We must know who we are in Christ. Only then can we lay down our rights and put aside our need to be right. Only then will we be free from rivalry and know true unity as His Church.
