Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel” (Philippians 1:3-5).

Although Paul was in a desperate situation, his thoughts of his brethren in the faith were unclouded and good. The reason for this was their “fellowship in the gospel.” This fellowship, this working together, produces mutual, blessed thoughts. It is good for us to ask ourselves regularly, how do I think of others? Thoughts are powerful. Although they cannot be heard, they can be felt. This is why the devil is always attempting to make Christians disunited, so that this power, these blessed thoughts of one another, the mutual love for one another, is lacking. Do you think blessed thoughts of all those around you? Do you really love them all? The carnal Christian is absorbed with thoughts of his own situation, but the blessed thoughts of the spiritual Christian of his neighbors produce inner independence from his personal needs. Blessed are those people who bless their fellow man in their thoughts, regardless of their own troubles. Therein lies the mysterious authority of the body of Jesus Christ.
