In Philippians 2, Paul points us to the foundational attribute needed for harmonious relationships - humility. Instead of giving us principles for how to develop a humble heart, Paul turns our gaze to the Lord Jesus Christ. He encourages us to consider Jesus’ attitude as the very example to replicate in our relationships with each other.

The pathway to holiness emerges from reflecting on the wonder of the saving work that Jesus accomplished on the cross. He has done all that is necessary in relationship to sin, to God, to Satan, and to us.

Alistair Begg shares words of wisdom from the flyleaf of his Bible with students on the threshold of a new academic year. First, if Jesus Christ is worth serving, He is worth serving well. Second, the matter of our head is an important matter: how we think and how we think about ourselves. Third, if our prayer is meager, then it is because we believe it to be supplemental and not fundamental. Fourth, relationships are vital.

After celebrating the Passover with his disciples, Jesus warned them that they would all fall away. In doing so, he identified a danger that we face too. When we rely on ourselves and trust our own hearts, we are in a precarious position. But as Jesus' words also remind us, failure with God is never final.

Predictions by man in regards to the future may cause increased worrying and tension throughout the world. But what does the Bible say about the future? God has promised to those who believe that He will not forsake them.

God will never change and by standing on God's promise we should not fear nor be dismayed.
