Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
Jesus was fully God and fully human but he didn't take advantage of his status. Instead, he embraced servanthood.
At FAITH we value servant leadership. Servant leaders use what they have to help others and build the church. We serve God by serving others. We serve others not because of who they are but because of who we are. We serve because we love. We love because Jesus first loved us.
Its okay to have status but don't let your status have you. Today, what would it look like to choose humility over status? How might you open up your heart and hands to serve others? It may mean serving those within your own home. Perhaps its a neighbor or a co-worker. Ask God to keep your eyes open for opportunities to serve. When the opportunity arrives embrace it — just like Jesus.
