Jesus and Identity: Week 1, Devotional 3

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:5-8

Don’t miss what’s being said in those verses you see at the top of this devotional. Paul makes a huge statement here. He says that our attitude should be like Jesus’ attitude. And how did Paul describe Jesus’ attitude? He said that Jesus (who was, you know, God Himself) saw His life as a life of humble service to others. Whoa.

If that attitude was good enough for Jesus to take on, then it should be good enough for us.

Spend today thinking about how this simple truth could radically change your life and your faith if you truly embraced it.

What would your life be like if you took on the identity of Christ’s humble service to the world?
