Daily Devotional: Tuesday, September 20 - Character Of A Kingdom Team

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” — Philippians 2:3-4

What does God’s Kingdom look like? Believers from different walks of life centered around one common thing — a cross that unites and invites.

Philippians 2:1-4 says the Kingdom looks like this: “Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”

This is the reality of God’s team: Kingdom vision, Kingdom minded, Kingdom unity. These are the characteristics of an unselfish team with championship culture.

“Team” by definition is a group of people who unite together to complete a common task or goal. Many of us have been on a team of some sort at one time or another, whether that be in sports, at school, at work or in our family. What about now? Does your team look like the Kingdom? Are you surrounding yourself with believers who are centered on the cross?
