Our Daily Elder Devotional: Christ’s example for us

Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.

 

Today’s devotional is from my heart to you.

 

Christ’s example for us

Philippians 2:6-7 New International Version (NIV)

6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with Godsomething to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.

  2. Philippians 2:7 Or the form

Jesus always gives us a perfect example to follow.  We see Jesus, Infinite, Omnipotent God of the Universe giving up His will, in order to show humility to His Father’s will.  Jesus, the Father and the Spirit engineered the sacrifice before the Universe was created. But in order to do that Jesus had to agree and defer His will to the Father’s will.  Jesus not only did that but made sure that we were told about what was done through the Bible.

Lord, help me to humble myself and keep my focus on You and not on myself.
