PHILIPPIANS 2 ; 4-7

not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

MATTHEW 11 ; 29

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

4 ) THE CONTROVERSY OF CHRISTMAS

THE COMING OF CHRIST INTO THIS WORLD CAUSED CONTROVERSY ESPECIALLY AMONG THOSE WHO WERE NOT PREPARED TO RECEIVE HIM. EVEN TODAY MANY FACE PERSECUTION WHEN THEY DECIDE TO FOLLOW CHRIST. WHEN CHRIST COMES INTO OUR LIVES IT MAY CAUSE CONTROVERSY AND OPPOSITION AS WELL . THOSE WHO HATE CHRIST MAY HATE US ALSO.
