Pure Desires Seven Pillars to Freedom

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-7

To understand the humility of Jesus Christ, take a moment and think about what it means to come into the world as a baby. Jesus was born in the likeness of men, saying that He came to us the same way we entered, through birth. There is sure humility in birth, especially considering Jesus did not have to arrive that way. He chose to. We’re talking about the image of God Himself who created everything with His Word. Ever ruler, power, and authority were made by Him. Everything made was meant to bring glory to Him and for Him. Humility is not often regarded as a reason to celebrate, but think again.

Because of Jesus’ humility, we have the mind of Christ! That spirit is humble and obedient. It leads a man not merely to know what he ought to do, it leads to resolute action, even in the face of death. If you want to think like a man, think like Jesus.

DO THIS TODAY: Let humility be on your mind.
