CO - LABORERS, NOT CO - EQUAL
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*CO- LABORERS, NOT CO- EQUAL*
1 Cor 3:9 *For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Though we are made in the likeness of God, no one can be likened with God.
Isaiah 40:25 ► *To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.*
The Apostle Paul set the tone for the believer, giving Jesus as a perfect example of humility.
He says, though Jesus was God (in the flesh) He did not think of equality
with God as something to be used to His advantage.
Paul's word that Jesus was and now is God finds breath in John 1:1-14 and in John 10:30 where Jesus says, *My Father and l are one.*
Today, many consider themselves equal with those who have authority over them.
Likewise many ordained in the same office as their leaders, consider themselves equal with their leaders.
We must have the mind of Jesus who says He and His Father are one, yet He also says He did whatever His Father asked Him to do. John 14:31 *"....as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do.*
Do you have this mind in you?
To think or behave as if we are God is robbery and the penalty is destruction.
*Call to Word action.*
We must never be too familiar with God to the point of dishonouring Him.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Paul forewarned saying every child of God must have the mind of humility, Philp 2:6.
Lord, forgive me in anyway l have seen myself as God, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
