There are moments when we fail in our love towards others – it is inevitable! So how do we learn to love others fully, as Christ loves us, despite our earthly desires? Is there a relationship in your life where you desire more closeness?

In the following passages, we will learn how to train our mindset to love others and how to put it into our daily practice. Through challenging relationships and difficult situations, Christ can transform us into his likeness.

As a reminder, here are the three questions we ask each show:
1. What does the passage say?
2. What's the backstory, what's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

Today's Scripture:

Philippians 2:5-8 NLT -
5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, 8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal's death on a cross.

Colossians 3:12-14 NIV -
12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

In this series, we're going to walk through the idea that Jesus is the teacher, and his classroom is your life. Your experiences, your struggles and joys, all of that is the living stuff that Jesus uses to teach you about himself and the kingdom of God.
