1. Jesus didn’t count Himself as great and neither should you.

but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. – Hebrews 1:2-3 (ESV)

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. – Romans 11:36 (ESV)

2. Jesus made himself into a nobody servant and so should you–

he had no form or majesty that we should look at him … and no beauty that we should desire him. – Isaiah 53:2 (ESV)

The real humiliation of the incarnation is that one who was himself God, and who never during the whole process stopped being God, could embrace such a vocation (as a slave).

3. Jesus walked in submitted obedience to God and you should too.

Application:

  1. Set your mind to think on Christ.
  2. Set your heart on the good of others.

Chris grew up in a moral home, but didn’t find the grace of Christ until he was a sophomore in college. He began to devour the Word and was soon helping to lead bible studies, outreaches, and worship at church. He married his beautiful wife, Tara, in the summer of 2002.
