Philippians 2:5-7 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant…

We have to take into our mind and heart that we are servants. Jesus did. He emptied Himself of the light and the beauty of God’s glory and came to live in a cold, damp world not to be our God and King but our servant. He came to heal us,  to teach us, to feed us, to wash our feet. We were meant to be like Him…loving, teaching, healing souls. 

Satan wanted to be like God. Equality with God was a thing he wanted to grasp. In us sometimes we want to be leader. We want people serving us and meeting our every need, making us happy. There’s the honor also of being seen as a leader in public.

We have a choice…to be like Jesus and give ourselves away.  Or we can be like the evil one and  take everything we can get. It’s a difficult choice and it takes a while to grow into being a servant. But we’ll be a little more like our Savior.
