Dave speaks on Philippians 2:4-18 on Christ’s example of humility and God’s heart.
Vs. 5 Jesus is others-centred. He has…
1. The selfless mind
2. The sacrificial mind
3. The serving mind
Vs. 6 Personal vs. positional equality
Jesus is part of the Trinity, but he acknowledges that the Father is greater (John 14:28) and he isn’t concerned about holding on to his position in heaven.
Vs. 7 He emptied himself
Jesus laid aside his majesty and came to serve. His example of washing his disciples’ feet in John 13:4- is a great example of humility.
Vs. 8 The humility of Jesus is…
1. Progressive – continued from birth to adulthood
3. Obedient to the point of death
