Good morning people who are grateful to Jesus for His bravery
Philippians 4:8 NIV Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
The word excellent is the word virtue in the KJV, and interestingly means manliness (valour). It also refers to moral excellence.
If you look a little deeper, this is talking about displaying great bravery in the face of danger (valour).
What did Jesus do when He walked this earth?
He lived a life saying YES to His Father and NO to His flesh – every time. He didn’t take any shortcuts and He finished His God-given assignment. He completed His mission, even by dying horrendously on a cross at the hands of those He created!
Talk about bravery! And He did it all for you and for me!
Our God is excellent in every way, and the more that we consider Him, the more we will walk in the joy and peace of God.
