I am Third
I am working on an inductive bible study of Phillipians. I am focusing on each word and trying to understand the meaning of each word, not just skim over it. So today the word JOY is sticking out at me. I remember the saying we use to hear all the time, Jesus, Others, and You. Do I put Me third? In a society that says do what YOU want it is not easy to put yourself third. We are taught that we can have it OUR way. That goes against what Christ taught. Christ did not have it HIS way. If he did, he would sure not have chosen to be nailed to a cross. He chose to put God first, others second, and Himself last. The Word tells me to be like Christ. I am third!
