In a culture that encourages us to focus on ourselves, on our conveniences, on our rights and on our outward image, how do we live counter-culturally, the way Jesus lived and demonstrated, with a heart of humility and other-centeredness?
SPIRITUAL STUFF FOR THE EVERYDAY SOUL
Message by Josh Mutter – September 22, 2019
Luke 18:14b NIV For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
HOW DO WE RESPOND WITH HUMILITY?
Philippians 2:6-11 NIV Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:5 NIV In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.
