Humility: Week 2 - Devotion 3

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection in sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others. – Philippians 2:1-4

Take a moment and read the passage of Scripture above. Think about all the ways that Paul challenges the Philippians to live in love and humility towards one another. Reflect on how well you are doing these things in your family, your youth group, and your church. Take a moment and ask God to help you do these things.

Then, read Philippians 2:5-10. 

Reflect on all that Jesus gave up to become a man and die on the cross for sin. Now think about the sheer amount of love he must have for you to give up his place in heaven and die on your behalf.

Thank God for his goodness to you in Jesus and praise him for the awesome plan of redemption that He has accomplished through the finished work of Jesus!
