He emptied Himself
Jesus made the conscious decision to set aside everything that was rightfully His.
We must decide to set aside everything that we have “earned”; everything that we “deserve”.
Humility is not thinking less of yourself but rather thinking of yourself less.
He placed Himself under authority.
Jesus obeyed the will of the Father and chose to serve those that He created.
We must decide to submit to the authority of Jesus and to the needs of others.
What is the one pursuit that you need to stop?
What is the one preference that you need to surrender?
What is the one grudge you need to let go of?
What is the one sacrifice you need to make for the benefit of others?
