I was listening to a song that went something like this: He died for me to give me life.
He came for us to and it is personal and amazing. His love and sacrifice is personal. We live though in a world/ time where we tend to draw attention to ourselfes. But Jesus didn’t (Romans 15.4 For even Christ did not please himself )
We are not just someone that Jesus died for, but also citizens of His Kingdom. We ought to live Kingdomwise «now» not only in the future ( Matthew 6.10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it isin heaven)
Being a Christian is still very personal. We see His love, provision, miracles, signs, lessons in a personal way, God talks to us in a personal way. All our personal andvancement though will be no use if we don’t use it for the advancement of the Kingdom. And God has made it that way that we work better when we work in fellowship, all toghether, one body
No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.
1 Corinthians 10.24
Now this could be something to pray for, which » team» (fellowship) we are going to be in/work/learn with and how using our gifts for the same purpose ( the advancement of the Kingdom)
So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding
that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
1 Corinthians 1:10
Holy Father, protect them by the power of[a]your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one
It is really inspiring how Jesus prayed for His disciples, an so shall we (John 17)
Once we understand how personal Jesus’s death is, we cant be thinking about ourslefs in our old egoistic way, but we shall surrender our slefs in serving God and others. Going from «me» to «we», from «me» to «others», following Jesus
