Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Dr. Rosalie de Rosset joined me on the radio yesterday and talked about baseball. I kidded her because she’s against sports metaphors. But the story she read about baseball cards and the “romance” of baseball is worth hearing if you didn’t. Go to chrisfabrylive.org and click on Past Programs.

One takeaway of the story was that we are to emulate Jesus in the same way a child looks up to a big league player. As a kid, I knew all of Pete Rose’s stats. Every year he had more than 200 hits. That’s why he’s still the all-time hit leader. But later, I learned that Pete didn’t live up to my admiration. He was a fallen hero, as all humans will turn out to be in some way or another.

You don’t have to worry about Jesus betting on a game or having a restraining order put on him. Jesus is perfection. That’s why the phrase, “made himself nothing,” keeps coming back to me.

Read Philippians 2:1-11 and concentrate on the phrase from verse 7: “taking the very nature of a servant…”

In what ways has Jesus served you?

How have you served others in the past week? Have you missed any opportunities?

What does it mean to you to know that God became a man to serve?

Write out a prayer thanking God for the way he demonstrated his love and ask him, if you mean it, to help you have that same nature of a servant.

(It’s a dangerous thing to ask God something and really mean it. He may give you an opportunity to serve someone today—like the one you might have missed in the past week. I encourage you to ask him and see what happens!)
