Daily Devotional: September 14, 2023 – Philippians 2:1-2

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. – Philippians 2:1-2

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Our verse today is from Philippians 2:1-2, which talks about unity, love, and fellowship in Christ. This verse encourages us not only to find comfort in Christ’s love but also to draw strength from our spiritual fellowship with Him to be like-minded in purpose and spirit.

In today’s fast-paced world, these words resonate profoundly. Many times, we find ourselves in situations where differences overshadow common goals and unity of purpose, leading to discord. But as followers of Christ, we are called to embody the spirit of unity, love, and compassion just as Christ has shown us. Think about it. When you meet someone new, a family member, or a colleague, how often do you strive to establish a deep connection based on shared beliefs and love? The spirit of unity and love isn’t only meant for Sunday worship, but it’s meant to guide our interactions with others every single day.

The verse reminds me of the times when I’ve had my moments of discord, but the reminder of unity and love in Christ has brought about reconciliation. Let’s hold on to this thought as we move into prayer.

My Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of unity and love in You. We come before you acknowledging that we don’t always exhibit the unity of spirit and purpose that you desire. Forgive us, Lord, for the times when we have let differences disrupt our unity, both within our families and in our communities.

Just as we draw strength, comfort, and encouragement from being united with You, may we also strive to mirror this unity amongst ourselves. Fill us with your tender love, the same love that unites us in spirit and purpose. Teach us to be like-minded, not only with our fellow believers but also with everyone we encounter in our daily lives. May our actions and interactions always reflect Your teachings of unity, love, and compassion.

Amen.
