Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them.  Matthew 7:12

Herein is the true Christian principle of living. It was certainly the standard the Lord Jesus set when here upon earth, for He lived a life of self-abnegation.

“Even Christ did not please Himself” (Rom. 15:3). Christ spent, and was spent, entirely on others. With that standard in view, the apostle writes, “Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification” (Rom. 15:2), “Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another” (Rom. 12:10), “Be of the same mind toward one another” (Rom. 12:16), “For none of us lives to himself” (Rom. 14:7).

In fact, the trend of all the teaching of the Epistles has this principle intertwined in it.

Work this principle into my life by Your Holy Spirit, O Lord. Amen.
