The Same Thing
“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind” (Philippians 2:1-2).
Today’s Morsel: A man from an Asian country was asked how he got the American name of Sam White having been born in Asia? The man said, "Well, when I came to America and approached Immigrations point, a man in front of me was asked what his name was? He said, to the officer, Sam White. And when I approached, and they asked me, I said, Sam Thang. The immigration officer thought I said, ‘Same thing’ and wrote on my papers Sam White." (Hope no offense here ... just a little humor). Paul said if we have any comfort of love, that which comes from God only, which is everlasting and unchangeable, then we should all know how to live according to it and how to use it. If we are born again, then we should all have the same kind of love. Agape. And either we have the same thing as the original apostles or we don’t. God is love and either we have Him or we don’t.
Sing: Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black, and white they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the children of the world.
