Our actions flow out of our identity – who we’re shapes what we do
Philippians 2 (Identity):
— I ‘m not entitled
— I’m to give myself away
— We’ve a master to obey
— I’m not what We’ve
— I’m not what I do
— I’m not what other folks say about me
A Philippians 2 identity will manifest alone within a John thirteen lifestyle.
“The instances I wrestle to become a servant, I am aware exactly what’s missing: safety. Real servanthood
can’t exist with insecurity. I’ll be driven by a quest for self-protection and self-promotion if I’m
haunted from the questions, Do I make a difference? Am I important? Am I valued? Am I cherished? In absence of
understanding I’m cherished, I’ve obtained to appear out for me and mine. I have to have other folks to acknowledge my
greatness. I have to have somehow to persuade myself that other folks are not as much proficient, not as much educated, not as much
worthy, not as much godly, not as much attractive than I’m.”

…when I’m not distracted with myself while helping other folks
…when I’m ready to become 100% current together with the particular person(s) I’m helping
…when I’m not involved with who gets the credit score
…when I can actually say you will find no ulterior motives in my acts of service
…when I discover myself helping without the mental debate – need to I or should not I?
…when I’m not annoyed from the particular person(s) response, or lack thereof
“Am I important? Infinitely. Do I make a difference? Eventually. Am I cherished? Entirely. So you understand what?
I really do not need to sweat and fret about having a bigger slice of your pie than you, a shinier nameplate
on my door, much more feathers in my cap, much more notches in my gun stock, much more letters after my name.
I really do not have to have anyone to pat me about the again and tell me how good I’m. God’s completed all that and
much more. Now I’m totally free – to become your servant.”
