Thought from church today (and I’m paraphrasing): When Christ raises us up out of our darkness is our response to serve him or is it to childishly demand more?
This is a sobering question. And of course it is not wrong to to request things from our God. In fact, He wants us to. But what heart position do we ask them from? Do we do it out of greed or selfish desire? Or do we do so out of honest need. Are we being selfless, put others in front of our desires? Christ came as a servant. And if we follow him we will be like minded. That is what having the mind of Christ is about at least in part. As I said, very sobering.
