A Daily Devotion for Monday, October 19
Updated: Oct 20, 2020
Philippians 2: 5-12
verses 5-7: Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
Jesus did a lot of teaching, sharing parables and insights into God’s word. He also taught by example, every minute of every day of his ministry on earth. He modeled perfect behavior for us to see and study and emulate. It seems like it should be easy to “be like Jesus” and act accordingly in all situations. But for me, it is not easy a lot of the time. Human behavior comes naturally and automatically sometimes. Godly behavior is not always automatic for me. The closer I hold Jesus, the better my chances of making a good choice.
Heavenly Father, you came to earth to show the way. Jesus is my example, my light and my path. Lead me, Lord. Amen Becky, transforming
