Text: Phillipians 2:5-11
we are likened to a beggar but Grace that has lifted us up from the dunghill.
We are dependent on Charity which is the love that Jesus came to show us

4. He was Obedient. Ecless 12:15
HOW DO WE GET LIFTED
1. God’s Word (Bible). 1Sam 2:8, Psa 27:5
2. Prayer (Helpline). Job 5:8-11
3. God’s Presence.
WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE ARE LIFTED OR AWAITING LIFTING
1. Be Steadfast. 1Cor 15:58
2. Be Forgiving always. Rom 12:20
3. Be Contented/Praise God. Phil 4:11
