Our focus at Trinity this Fall will be on holistic, healthful living, and will be based on the two great commands to Love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbor as our self. So, as I was discerning how to use our summer DSE’s to lay some groundwork for this Fall emphasis, I kept coming back to what may be the most holistic, positive, helpful and healthful book in the Bible: Philippians – such a great book, and perfect for our summer meditations together. You’ll notice, too, often at the bottom of my daily reflections icons or references to other things we are doing at Trinity to support this theme. I look forward to our journey through Philippians together. Let’s begin:
“Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus.”” (1:1)
Servants of Christ Jesus - That’s what I desire to be/become, and I desire that for you – that our First Love is our First Love, that we nurture that commitment and resolve to love Him first. As Jesus said in his Sermon on the Mount, when we love/seek Him first, everything else falls into place (Matthew 6:33). Do you?
And I had not noticed before that both Paul and Timothy are mentioned together here. Christianity isn’t a solitary Faith; we need each other, to encourage one another, support each other, hold each other accountable, to ask in one form or another: “How is it with your soul, your health, your heart?” I’ve found that being in a group of guys that does that for each other is immeasurably helpful. I hope you have someone else or some others who do that for you.
God bless, Dan
