We are...The Men of the Godhead!
Philippians 1:3 I thank my God fin all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.
You can “feel the love” Paul is writing with for his spiritual family in Philippi. There is such deep affection and commitment in his heart for them. It is said that approx. 10 years had passed since Paul has seen this family and he was located 800 miles away, imprisoned in Rome.
Their like hearted passion for Jesus and the gospel bound their hearts. I wouldn’t have guessed that Paul had not had personal contact with those in Philippi for years. The Gospel and their passion to stick up for Paul and the work of God through Paul, bound their hearts together.
Today - I am incredibly blessed to have a group of men, friends who are committed to Jesus, His Gospel mission and myself. The central heart bond is our deep love for Jesus; who He is and His commission! But these men would not “leave me behind” so to speak. Their care, concern, love and commitment to my family is TO DIE FOR! I really meant to LIVE FOR!
These men love their God - Our Daddie, Jesus and the Holy Spirit - with ALL their hearts! We are the Men of the Godhead!
Dear Godhead. I dedicate this devotional, my prayer, heart and life to You, Beckie, our children and the Men of the Godhead! Thank You for the partnership You have set up with my friends... for life! With overwhelming joy... I pray for and love each of my brothers, their loved ones - these Men of the Godhead!
It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you kin my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace... (v.7)
