Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for I, your God, am with you wherever you go. You have been sheltered for a time, so that I could renew your strength. You know that I am your satisfaction and you know that nothing else can fill you as I do. Now, I am calling you to move towards wounded people, to walk among their fears and failures. I yearn to be with these people because I love them. My Spirit is dwelling in you and as you set aside your fears and draw near to them, I can touch them. I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of love. Love came down. I am asking you to do the same. ~Jesus
Philippians 2:5-8 Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage. Instead He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a slave, taking on the likeness of men. And when He had come as a man in His external form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death-even to death on a cross.
