Saturaday, Morning Prayer- Philippians 2: 2-4, 14-16
Shalom, today I would like to start with a verse to reflect on: "Complete my joy by being of the same mind, with the same love, united in heart, thinking of one thing." How is this even possible, when we live to project our own individualism. The same mind, one thought process. Let's go back to the beginning, Genesis. The story of the heavens and earth, told by an storyteller who recorded the events as they unfold or told to him as an child. We know it was an him, because only recently has women played a vital role in today's church and society. God is this dominant male in the sky and Earth is the woman for God setting. Let's begin with the border of the Bible, there was a creation from heavens to mankind. The first seven days of creation in God's counting is good, however, come the eight day sin enter into the world and that was bad. The question here, is this actually the main event or something leading up to the event that will end life as we know it? Did God not already know this in his planning stage, before creating something so magnificent? Seriously, a bite from an apple from the wrong tree, actually sent the world into total chaos? No, there is something else and according to the Bible that I am using all 2,595 pages, there is a reason why these words some billions years later is at our disposal. The ole saying "God is trying to tell us something" and it is up to us to "want" to find out what that something is and what it means to our human society. Let's reflect on the above verses in Philippians and then retrace the steps from our ancient ruins. While we can, its time to dig deeper and uncover the path, never travel before. Being of one mind as a people of God.
