Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

Who being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death-
– even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

-philippians 2:5-11 (NIV)

  1. Ken,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like the focus of your blog as it is directed right at Jesus, our Savior.
    Remember that this call to share Christ’s attitude in Phil 2, calls on us to “work,” but concludes with: FOR IT IS GOD WHO IS WORKING IN YOU.
