Daily Devotional

26 July 

5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Philippians 2:5-8, ESV)

You think it’s hard to humble yourself before the authorities you have over your life? Try being head coach and then lowering yourself to be the water boy. What a change! What a choice! Christ did that for you. Not thinking of all He was leaving up in heaven, He became a servant and descended into Hell so you could learn to have the attitude.

Prayer: Lord, teach me to be humble in worshipful obedience to you.
