Week 2. Tuesday: Humble and Obedient
PRAY: Ask God to speak to you from His Word.
READ: Philippians 2:7-8
7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!
UNDERSTAND: get a deeper understanding of the key words
Begin by underlining nouns with a single line, double underline verbs, and circle descriptive words.
Make a list of the key words/phrases and think about what they mean.
Snapshot: In this passage Paul describes the sacrifice Christ made for us. Jesus left heaven to take on a servant’s role on our behalf. In order to purchase our salvation, Jesus came to serve the glory of God by becoming obedient. Though Christ had the highest position, He chose humbled Himself to the point of death. Jesus did this for two reasons; to bring God glory and to bless us with the way of salvation.
Takeaway: The goal of obedience should always be God’s glory.
