Good morning.

"In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus." (Philippians 2:5)

Terran Williams says: "Jesus' love of people, as individuals, was perhaps His most striking characteristics. That's why the heart of Christlikeness is compassion and mercy, a deep care for people."

While our primary gift may not be service or mercy, we all have a desire to be more like Christ.

For us as followers of Christ, the only way to grow in Christlikeness is through pursuing a deeper relationship with Him on a daily basis. As we do this our lives will be marked with compassion in increasing measure.

We are to respond to Jesus' Great Command - “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ ; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10:27)<
