. . . 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.
Living in the In-Between Times
As people following Christ, we all experience stop and go, arrival and departure, life and death. We know about living in between pivotal moments. It’s easy to believe that God is not at work in the ordinary. But He is! Through my book Living in the In-Between Times, you’ll discover how God speaks to you, how you can respond, and the significance of decisive commitment to the will of God.
