Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Pass It On
Our Human Weakness: God’s Interests or Our Own? (Phil 2:3-8, 21)
Our Lord Jesus Christ is the ultimate example of one living a selfless life. Today’s text urges us to have an intentional mindset of God’s interests permeating, penetrating, and being promoted in and through our own interests. Too often we are caught up in being “consumers” of God, instead of rather being consumed in God. Each day is a new opportunity to promote God’s interests and to be generous in regards to the interest or need of someone else. Consider how you might put this into practise today.
