Philippians, Chapter Two, Lesson One

THE JOY OF UNITY            Page 6
EXTRICATE (Cont'd.)

** "Since" all of that is true, what should it produce in us which has been designed by God to complete our since of joy in this life?

Our unity "in the fear of Christ". (Remember Ephesians 5:21)

DELINEATE

** What was God's three step plan for creating this type of joy filled unity within the body of Christ?

1. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit. Remember - Watch our motives!

2. Regard others as more important than yourself. Form the practice of exalting others!

3. "Look out" for the needs of others. Anticipate and meet those needs!

EVALUATE

** As you review that short list, in which of those three areas does your heart need the most work?

As we study God's word each week, we strive to apply what we have learned. Can you imagine how much greater we would experience "The Joy of Unity" if we all were to do what we learned in this passage?

ACTIVATE

** Father, we thank you for examples like Tabitha and Paul, who thought of themselves as they ought to and were always placing others above themselves by anticipating their needs and then meeting them. Help us we pray, to learn and grow in our own walk with You, as your Spirit transforms us from one level of glory into the next - making us more like Your precious Son, Jesus Christ.
