Serving Jesus in Our Community

Bible Notes

Philippians 2:5-7 (12.08.20)

Philippians 2:5-7 NIV
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; [7] rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

Sometimes we can get too familiar with these verses, so familiar that the impact is lost. Jesus, King of kings, took the conscious decision to see himself as a servant, leading through serving others. This is not a subversion of leadership, but the true definition of leadership and use of power – it is our use of it that is twisted or corrupted.

Spirit, help us to grasp Jesus’ example in our own lives.

Ps. Don’t forget to pray for and promote the Alpha Course…
