But He Made Himself of No Reputation
“But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” - Philippians 2:7
Jesus came in a manger for you and for me. He willingly left the glories and riches of heaven to be born in a stable.
Jesus became poor so that we might become rich. He lived a life of such abject poverty that when He had to pay taxes, He had to look for a coin in a fish’s mouth. When He sent out His disciples, He told them to take nothing but a staff and the power of the Holy Spirit (Mark 6:7-9). He was put to death like a common criminal so that we could wear a royal robe!
Child of God, you are rich! I am rich! Praise God!
Read Philippians 2:6-11 with your family or friends today as a Christmas devotional. Spend time praising God for His Son, Jesus.
