A HUMBLE village

 

Philippians 2:3

King James Version

3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; 

but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other 

better than themselves.


A PRAISE village is a humble village.

It does nothing out of vainglory, or conceit.

Villagers live, from a point of love and care for each other.

And utmost reverence for the LORD.

When people's hearts are right with GOD, there is no conceit.

Only a LOVE for the LORD.

We look to how JESUS lived His life.

We pattern our lives from His.

Philippians 2:5-8

King James Version

5 Let this mind be in you, 

which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 Who, 

being in the form of God, 

thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7 But made himself of no reputation, 

and took upon him the form of a servant, 

and was made in the likeness of men:

8 And being found in fashion as a man, 

he humbled himself, 

and became obedient unto death, 

even the death of the cross.


And yet, GOD exalted His SON.

Philippians 2:9-11

King James Version

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, 

and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, 

of things in heaven, 

and things in earth, 

and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess 

that Jesus Christ is Lord, 

to the glory of God the Father.


PRAISE villagers know what matters most.

GOD.

We live simply.

We work honestly.

We do not desire the things of the world.

We only desire to live by the WORD.

For life is but a vapor on earth.

James 4:14

King James Version

14 Whereas ye know not 

what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour, 

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.


That we may be ready, when the time comes.

For JESUS can return, any moment.

May we be found blameless.

Philippians 2:14-16

King James Version

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; 

that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, 

that I have not run in vain, 

neither laboured in vain.
