Then complete my joy by having a common purpose and a common love, by being one in heart and mind.
Insight: The supreme example of looking out for the interests of others was given by Jesus' descent from the equality with God to die for humanity. In union with the Messiah, His attitude of humility can be ours. God rewards such obedience.
Prayer: Lord please teach me how to "enter into" the common purpose and love that You have called Your body into. Show me how to be one in heart and mind as You set me apart spirit, soul and body. I know that the teacher, the "Holy Spirit" dwells within me and that You desire that I conform to Your image. In Jesus Name.
