Happy New Year! Hope you are ready to dive into the New Year with passion and purpose! 2010 is going to be an amazing year!
I've decided to spend the next several months studying the life of Jesus. So, I will be reading through the 4 gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and other passages related to Jesus. I'll do my best to blog my way through this for anyone who cares to join the journey!
This morning I was directed to Philippians 2:3-11. I encourage you to grab your bible and read it there for yourself!
Very convicting passage for me! I need to develop the humility that Jesus had. He is God and yet didn't "think of equality with God as something to cling to."
Jesus is selfless! He never tried to impress anyone. He was humble and treated people around Him with great dignity and respect! He wasn't trying to put others down, but instead tried to lift them up!
I really don't like the development process of humility! It's painful! To grow true humility, we have to be around some prideful people. As a prideful person myself, I'm not excited to be around more people like me! But I know that as I choose humility when tempted to choose pride, my pride will lose the strange hold it has on my life.
Jesus, today I choose again to be like you! I need Your strength to choose humility! I cannot do this alone! Strengthen me today with your Spirit as I seek to become like You! Go before me and do more than I can ask or think!
