April 10 - One Community: Philippians 2:1-11
As a community of believers, many times we assume that others have the same shared experiences as us or the same viewpoints as us. We often tie those shared experiences or viewpoints that are separate from the Bible to our acceptance of others into our community. As Christians, we need to remember that what God says is important, and our cultural preferences or beliefs that aren't from the Bible are secondary. We need to have passion for Jesus, and not our rules and customs over God's Word. We need to accept others that have that same passion for Jesus, even if they may have a different background or viewpoints than us.
