Working on a good team doesn’t happen by accident. It’s natural for us to fight for our own way and do our own thing, but a good team is refreshing and effective. When it comes to teamwork, we can choose unity or division. We can choose to do our own thing, or to lay ourselves aside in order to strengthen and benefit the team’s mission.

What is the Goal of the Christian Life? Perfection or Direction? One or the other? Or both? What are the ‘realistic’ expectations for the Christ follower?

We have all been back to the store at one time or another to exchange something that was the wrong size or the wrong color etc. A wrong size shirt or shoe just doesn’t ‘make it’. In all those years when the apostle Paul was zealous for pleasing God, he had missed what true righteousness was all about. So do we. He finally gets knocked off his horse on the way to Damascus and the Lord meets him in a vision. Following his encounter with the living Christ, he learns that his credentialswere nothing in compared to Christ’s accomplishments on a wooden cross outside of Jerusalem.  The two sides of the ledger did not even out. Paul would find freedom and liberation and joy in knowing that his confidence could only rest in the perfect Son of God and his finished work.

As we walk through the letter to the church in Philippi we are encouraged and challenged by Paul and Timothy’s genuine concern for their condition. Paul has painted perhaps the greatest treatment of the humility of Christ and has called the people to shine like stars in dark world. (2:1-18)

Most of us have had the experience of losing power at night. Everything goes black and we usually fumble around for a candle or wonder where we left that flashlight a week ago. Whether it’s a flashlight or the lighting of a candle, great relief comes when the light shines.

There is nothing more noticeable on a dark night than a full moon against a cloudless sky. When I lived in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa, my in-country ministry trips would take us into villages where there were no streetlights. The oil lamps would light the pathways and the starlight would be so brilliant and so magnificent that it was an unforgettable experience.
