You have an attitude problem…I have an attitude problem…If I had a nickel for every time I heard a parent say “I don’t like your attitude”… I’d have a big pile of nickels… Attitude is a big deal. Your attitude is important. It makes a very big difference in life.
Paul told the Philippian church “Your attitude should be like that of Christ Jesus”. You should mimic Him and specifically His attitude. In other words, we need to change our perspective, viewpoint. Even if we are doing things well, there is room to be more like Christ. He is the benchmark we aim for. He is the goal and model which we should be seeking to emulate. And our attitude plays a big part of that.
So what is Jesus’ attitude? He starts out up high – being in very nature God. But He did not consider equality with God something to be grasped. “Grasped” in this sense is more like “exploited, grabbed, taken for one’s own advantage”. The NIV editorial board updated the translation here to read “did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage.” He was not willing to use His Divinity for His own benefit. He refused to exploit His authority.
He takes on the form of a servant. There are two words for servant- diakonos (where we get the word deacon) which is an administrator, server, waiter, attendant. But then there’s doulos – a bondservant, slave, one without any authority. Jesus becomes a doulos.
Being made in the image of mankind (quite the interesting flip- mankind was made in God’s image, now He is made in the image of mankind), he humbled Himself again, becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross. He obeys death. The cross is the ultimate in humility. He has gone from the highest heights to lowest low.
God is most fully glorified through the act of being a doulos. God is most fully glorified by serving us. You would think God would be most glorified by being up there, unapproachable, heavenly, holy, untainted by mingling with us. But God says to us: “No, the most glorious thing I can do is to be humble, be a servant of all. Because through this act, men and women will live forever with Me.” So God exalted Jesus because He obeyed,
Want God to show you favour? Want to experience what it means know the pleasure and joy of God? Humble yourself. Serve. Love. Pour yourself out. Make your attitude like that of Jesus Christ. Jesus said “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant (diakonos) and whoever wants to be first must be your slave (doulos)”. Give of yourself. Lose yourself for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Become a doulos of Jesus Christ. Paul, Peter, Jude, James and John all use that title: doulos of Jesus Christ. Servant or slave is not exactly a title you’ll use if you are trying to flatter yourself. But that’s what we’re called to take on: doulos.
So, do you have an attitude problem? Do you need an attitude adjustment? Are you willing to be the servant of all to give your life over so that others might live? (GRAHAM WARE)

Revival In The Mountains – The Ba’Kelalan Miracle
In 1987, deep in the jungles of Sarawak, in the village of Ba’Kelalan, home to the Lun Bawang tribe, you might have stumbled upon a young Chinese man from West Malaysia. He was an odd sight, so one would be forgiven for wondering what had brought him there, close to the border of Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The man is today Pastor Philip Siang, a man with a big heart for tribal people both in East & West Malaysia. Back then, Siang had a keen interest in what God was doing in the nation, and wanted to travel around to learn more. When he heard about a great revival that happened at Ba’Kelalan, he naturally decided to go there. When he reached his destination, he felt that he belonged there.
As a West Malaysian, he couldn’t stay long, but he soon returned there, this time as a student of the local Bible school He quickly integrated into the community and soon became an interpreter. He was a friend and brother to many who had experienced the revival, and was witness to its widening impact …….
But God “chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong” (1 Cor 1:27). As Siang further says, “God prepared the Lun Bawangs because of their simplicity. The Bible says, ‘Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.’ These are people who are meek. They are warriors who fight not with carnal weapons, but with weapons of righteousness, gentleness, goodness, faith, steadfastness, and truth.”
Siang has more stories of the Ba’Kelalan revival, but this article cannot hold all those stories. Since his early years there, he has continued to witness the wondrous workings of God wherever he goes. Yet Siang believes that there’s much more that God can and will do, be it in Ba’Kelalan or elsewhere.
“I’ve not seen nor heard the Lord personally, or touched Him personally, but I’ve seen His footprints, His works. And still I’ve seen very little,” he concludes.

Sunday, (Mar 1) – Jesus urges and exemplifies servant leadership – a trait that was as uncommon then as it is now. Pray for our church leaders, and also for all of us, to have a servant’s heart like that of Jesus. Pray that we will aim to please Christ by giving of ourselves to serve Him and others, to stop focusing only on ourselves, but be aware of the needs of others. Pray that we will adopt the attitude of Christ that enables us to lay aside our rights in order to serve others. Pray that we will develop His attitude of humility as we serve, even when we not likely to get recognition for our efforts.
Monday, (Mar 2) – Pray for the Christians in Malaysia that no matter what we see, we will remember and stand on God’s promises with unshakable faith. Pray that Church in Malaysia will display deep trust in our God, and will be a beacon of light, faith and hope in the nation. Pray for Christian leaders to be examples of integrity and righteousness, and to serve God with reverent awe and holiness. Pray that the Church will continue to persevere in prayer for revival and for the needs of the nation. Pray that the Lord will continue to use the prayer organizations in the nation to rally the churches to be fervent in prayer.
Tuesday, (Mar 3) – Pray for the Nation: Pray that God will raise up genuine leaders who represent and care for all Malaysians, who lead by the example of their own lives, who are not afraid to speak up when racists surface or religious bigotry and oppression is expressed. Pray that the Lord will give us leaders who share in the struggles and hopes of the average person, and live simple lives without any excessive extravagance. Pray that we will have leaders who will fight relentlessly against our primary national enemy, corruption. Pray for a government of integrity and justice that will regain the trust of the rakyat.
Wednesday, (Mar 4) – Pray for the work of Migrant Ministry Klang (MMK), that God will bless the good work of missions among the migrants in Klang. Pray for wisdom, strength and passion for all those involved in this work, that the foreign workers will be blessed through the work of MMK. Pray that there will be sufficient funds for this ministry this year. Pray that more migrants will be reached with the Gospel. Pray also for the El Shaddai Learning Centre that people will respond positively to the project to financially help the students who are studying in the centre.
Thursday, (Mar 5) – The World Day of Prayer 2015 (organized by the Council of Churches Malaysia, Women’s Work Committee) will be held in St Paul’s Church, PJ on Saturday, March 7, 2015. Pray for God’s hand upon the organizing committee as the members look into last minute details, that everything will flow smoothly. Pray that people from the Klang valley will come for this service to pray for the Bahamas (the country of focus for this year’s World Day of Prayer). Pray that all those who participated in the Fellowship of the Least Coin (including those from Klang Wesley) will return the coin boxes, and that a healthy sum of money will be collected for work among the poor in the Bahamas.
Friday, (Mar 6) – Pray for the TRAC: One TRAC emphasis this year is to reach out to the Young Adults (ages 21 – 35). During the Selangor District Conference in February, several leaders highlighted that their churches are deliberately trying to tailor-make regular activities of the church with the sole purpose of meeting the needs of the Young Adults. Pray for all TRAC churches (including Klang Wesley) that concerted efforts will be made towards this goal. Pray that older church leaders may intentionally mentor / reach out to the Young Adults.
Saturday, (Mar 7) – Pray for the World: Pray for missionaries and Christian workers in North Korea as their work is very dangerous and causes a lot of stress. Pray for God’s protection upon them, and for spiritual and physical health and strength. Pray that God will sustain them and their contacts. Pray for the Christians in North Korea to find joy, hope and strength in Christ to sustain them.
