. . . coming in the likeness of men. He humbled Himself . . .

       (Philippians 2:7-8)

 

Christ said that there is a reversal in the kingdom. The world says that if you want to gain, you must hold on to things; but Christ says that you must give them up. The world says that promotion is the highest elevation, but Christ says that humiliation is. As 1 Peter 5:6 says, “Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.” And when God lifts you up, no one can bring you down—no person on earth or demon from hell.
