March 28, 2009 (Ex. 39; Jn. 18; Prov. 12; Phil. 2)

Philippians 2:5-11 was probably an early hymn composed to testify to the greatness of Jesus Christ; a greatness, notice, that was attainted through humility. Indeed what is truly remarkable about the character of Christ in this passage is the fact that He did not “cling” to that which was His right. Instead He set it aside and took the form of a servant in order to benefit us. What is most remarkable is the context of this passage in the book of Philippians. In its context Paul is using this hymn as a model for us to follow. “Let this attitude be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…”. Are you following your model?
