Amazing Gospel - God Became One of Us

TNIV Scripture for Friday, September 19, 2008 [Philippians 2:5-10]

In your relationships with one another, have the same attitude of mind Christ Jesus had: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a human being, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death--even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

God in His very nature
Set aside His advantages as God
Made Himself nothing by taking on the very nature of a servant
Was made in human likeness
Humbled self
Was obedient to die on a cross

Exalted Christ to the highest place
Gave Jesus a name above every other name
Will cause every knee to bow at the name of Jesus, in heaven and earth

May the truth about your Servant Savior fill and bless you so that His character will overflow into all of your relationships today.
