In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Philippians 2:5
Jesus commanded us to love one another as he loved us, how much did Jesus love us? He willingly laid down his life for us all, even the people who deny and mock him. It’s important for us to try to achieve this mindset, love just as Christ loves us.
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. Philippians 2:6-7
Even though Jesus was God in the flesh, he lowered himself to be an atonement sacrifice for our sins. He could have easily wiped out the Roman Empire with a snap of his finger but instead he decided to try and save the Romans just like he saved the entire world.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death– even death on a cross! Philippians 2:8
Jesus was so stressed out about taking the cross that he sweated blood, but he willingly went thru the brutal beating and painful death of the cross to save us from our sins. It’s only because of the obedience and love of Jesus that we have been saved.
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,and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
The Name above all Names, Jesus was exalted by God to be King of Kings and sit as his right hand. Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is our Lord and Savior. There is no other name greater than Jesus, exalt him everyday Amen
