Read Philippians 2:5-11
Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;
he took the humble position of a slave
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,
he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross. (Philippians 2:7-8 NLT)
“What’s in it for me?” is not the attitude of Christ. Secure in His status as the Son of God, Christ willingly became a servant (and then our Savior). As Christ-followers, we are expected to be secure in our status as children of God and willingly serve others as we follow Jesus’ example.
