The Greatest Humility!

 

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Philippians 2:5-8

 

Jesus Christ knew that he was equal to God, and yet he was humble making himself a servant… and obeyed God, even in the requirement of his death on the cross! Thank you Lord! That really puts me to shame. Now look at his most assuredly deserved reward:

 

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11

  1. Philippians 2 is a wonderful chapter. I am thankful for the excellent example Christ is to us in every area of our lives, but especially humility. I know that this is an area that I struggle in, but I don't think that I am the only one. "There hath no temptation taken you, but such as is common to man..."
