There it is again!

Over the last few weeks, Philippians 2:5-11 has frequently been on my mind.
5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 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.
This passage has come up during my devotional time, in conversations with people, while preparing the youth for a service project, and most recently during sermon preparation. Throughout the Scriptures we are told to meditate on the Word of God. It seems that the Lord has wanted me to spend time meditating on this passage. And the more I read it and think through it, the more I stand in awe of my Savior: Fully God. Fully Man. Servant. Obedient. Crucified. Savior. Name above all names. Lord.

How do we respond to such a great Savior? We worship Him. We believe in Him. We adore Him. We bow to Him. We glorify Him. We imitate Him. "Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus."
