Humility: Consider Others

Air Date: 1/24/18

Phil 2:3-5 (NKJV)

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,

Teaching Points:

Selfishness (v.3a): As we go out to share the Gospel, it cannot be about US, “winning notches in our belt” or even our fear.

Consider other (v.3b): We must consider others more important.  This overcomes our fear or our pride.

Interest of others (v.4): Put yourself in “their shoes”.

Attitude of Christ (v.5): Some translations say, “this mind… which is your in Christ Jesus”
