I woke up sick Sunday morning so called Ezdras to preach for me. He was more ill then I was so I preached & he slept.
Today, Monday, we will pay for the land & sign the contract if there are no glitches. Our lawyer says all is well.
We need to do for others what Jesus has done for us. Jesus has been so tender and so compassionate to all of His children. He has unconditional love for us. This means we need to think like Christ thinks. We only do that by staying in the Word to discover how He thinks. Christ can see the heart and we need to attempt to do exactly the same thing. We should have a common goal. We rejoice with others when they rejoice and we weep when they weep.
Secondly, we need to love as He does meaning unconditionally and continually. God is love! If we are His children we will do all we can to love others. I should always protect others, trust them, hope the bet for them, be fair and honest with them, be kind, gentle and sincere with them.
Thirdly, unity comes when we have the same purpose. Every Christian should have the same purposes. We should desire the salvation for all we know. We should desire to live the very best of our ability in Christ.
Finally, we need to be unselfish and humble. Paul says that we are to do nothing of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Do not look at your own interests but look to the interests of others. The hand needs the foot and the eyes need the ears. Everyone has a place in the body of Christ.
