Advent, Day 16 – Servant

Consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let his mindset become your motivation. He existed in the form of God, yet he gave no thought to seizing equality with God as his supreme prize. Instead he emptied himself of his outward glory by reducing himself to the form of a lowly servant. He became human! He humbled himself and became vulnerable, choosing to be revealed as a man and was obedient. He was a perfect example, even in his death – a criminal’s death by crucifixion! (Philippians 2:5-8)

Let the mindset of Jesus become your motivation. Desire to serve and not control. Be humble, not proud. Empty yourself of arrogance and instead be filled with love. Be obedient to your promises even at the sacrifice of your time. Don’t knock people down but build them up with encouraging words and deeds.
