How can I make a difference in a broken world?

Stained Glass Cross


Paul was very concerned with Christian Unity. He knew that Jesus believed that Christianity unity would persuade the world that God had sent him. The trouble was Christianity was severely divided in Paul's day. He addressed the problem in Galatians, 1 Corinthians, and in this beautiful hymn to Jesus which forms the bulk of the above pericope. Paul sees much of the disharmony coming from pride, envy, and jealousy. He reminds the Philippians that God's Son emptied himself and became a servant, obedient even to death.

Disunity still exists today. It hampers the spread of the Gospel. How much of it is due to an arrogant assumption that one has the truth and the others do not. Humility is an essential Christian virtue. May God bless us with it.
