Bible Text: Philippians 2:5-8 |

Followers of Jesus love one another in humble, obedient, servant-hood ways. The power/ability to do this is by staying connected to Jesus. Loving one another means we love imperfect, sinful people in the midst of their sin (1 Peter 4:8). The church that loves this way can tolerate more differences and forgive more wrongs. It will be a community noted for hospitality, warmth and kindness. The cause of Christ is advanced when we love each other through thick and thin, when we love each other deeply.
