11/15 Philippians 2

Today’s topic is Humility.  Paul explains that the perfect example of humility was Jesus.  If we follow his example then we should strive to be likewise.

5Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

This also would be a very good section of scripture to memorize.  It very clearly explains who Jesus was and how powerful and important he is, yet it describes him as a servant.  If you want to know who Jesus is, keep reading this over and over until you get it.
