Daily Prayer for November 29th, 2019     

Good morning, God—thank You!! 🙂

Even though Jesus was You in the flesh, He took the duties of a servant. Being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death. You exalted Him and granted Him the name above all names. I confessed that Jesus Christ is Lord and bow down to Him. Help me to keep in harmony with Him, having His wisdom and the same love. Let me do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, and put others before myself. To You be the glory forever! Amen.

Philippians 2 English Standard Version (ESV)

Christ’s Example of Humility

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
