Apostle Grace Lubega
Philippians 2:5-8(KJV); Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
As a servant and a minister of God, there are blessings that will follow you. You will attract influence, wealth and favour because God is faithful and He rewards His servants.
However, no matter how much God increases and multiplies you, you must remain humble to purpose.
Being humble to purpose means that you never allow the blessings and the riches that come to you to overshadow the call of God upon your life.
The same mind that was in Christ should be in you. He was God but He ate with sinners, kept company with those rejected by society and loved the outcasts.
Being humble to purpose means that you stay approachable to men. It means that you remain willing to be made all things to all men that you may save some (1 Corinthians 9:22).
Christ was not an anointed hermit. He was always surrounded by multitudes because He came for men, lived for them and died for them. Purpose made Him available to people from all walks of life.
The basis of divine purpose is the lives of men.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this instruction. I know that You have blessed me exceedingly and I am eternally grateful. It shall never be heard that I left the path and course You set for me because of these blessings. What I own and have is a tool for the gospel. To the glory of Your name, Amen.
