Reading: Philippians 2: 5-11
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. --Philippians 2:5
Attitude. We hear so much about it. Sayings like, "The Power of Positive Thinking!" or "Your attitude, not your aptitude, determine your altitude." Such empowering words! Sounds like the right attitude can really get you places. However, as Christians, we are told to imitate Christ's attitude.
So, what was Christ's attitude? Humility. God came to earth as a baby born in a very humble place. Jesus lived humbly in service to others. Then He suffered a humiliating death on the cross. Not such an empowering approach, one would think, and yet...God highly exalted him! Knees bow before and tongues confess Jesus Christ is Lord! Humility to Glory.
Yes, we are to imitate Christ's humility. There truly is power in that attitude and to God be the glory! --Ruth Gates, frequent Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
Closing Prayer: Dearest Lord Jesus, we offer, in stunned humility, our gratitude and praise for your complete act of sacrifice. You gave yourself even for sinners like us. Truly you are the Son of God. Amen. (Prayer from the Moravian Daily Text - March 30, 2014.)
