How do we live in God’s presence? Receive His gracious gift and act on the virtue of faith. It isn’t all about working for faith, it isn’t all about waiting on Jesus, there is a concurrence. Work with the gifts God has given you to produce fruit through virtue and love.
The hymn Christ-Hymn of Philippians 2 is masterfully honoring the humanity and deity of Christ. Paul paints Jesus at the highest peak of
honor, placing his name above all creation; and shows this from the vantage point of the lowest points of humanity; emptied, humble and obedient.
