There’s Only One

What are you expecting when you come to church on Sundays?
EXPECTATION. HUMILITY. DESPERATION. PREPARATION. URGENCY.
Jesus humbled himself and became obedient unto death. Our mind should be the same as Jesus. Humility and obedience are connected.
One of the greatest hinderances in the Church is spiritual pride. God is calling us to a level of longing – a desperation that affects our preparation and preparation affects our expectation. Our expectation on a Sunday morning should be at such a level that we know that something is going to happen. “We can eagerly expect” that we give our hearts to Him.
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” PHILIPPIANS 2:5-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” Romans 1:16
Philippians 2:5–8, Romans 1:16, Philippians 1:20–21
