Do you consider yourself to be a Christian? Do you follow the instructions provided to us in Philippians 2:1-4 (The Message) ?:

If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.

Can you say honestly that you always adhere to these instructions? I know I sometimes fail in following these instructions, but it’s not because I mean to break these rules, it’s simply that I’m human!

God knows that we cannot be perfect and do all He expects of us if He is not actually part of our life. Therefore we must ensure we have given the whole of our life, our everything to Him if we ever want to be able to achieve all He wants us to.

By putting our life firmly in God’s hands, He can guide us and help us to be live as He desires us to 24/7.
