Daily Devotional “Therefore…?”

Daily Devotional “Therefore…?”
Be different!
October 26, 2022

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in the very nature of 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.

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name.

Philippians 2:5-9

Notice the therefore in today’s reading. Jesus was on a journey of humility—he was God, but he made himself nothing. He was a servant, but he was utterly obedient, even unto death.

And not only an average death, but death on the cross. At each level, Jesus humbles himself more. And the point? “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”

You may be a “somebody,” but God would have you make yourself a “nobody” in the world’s eyes. But does it end there?

No! Therefore God exalted Jesus…and God will exalt you to be a co-heir with Christ:

We are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Romans 8:17

It’s like a math formula or an inverse proportion. The more we humble ourselves, the more God will raise us up, not to just any old high place, but as a co-heir seated alongside our Savior.

Astounding! We suffer with Christ that we may share in Christ’s highest glory.

Believers who face the greatest conflict yet hold onto God with all their hearts, these are the ones who have the greatest confidence in sharing Christ’s glory.

In what way can you humble yourself today? Is an apology owed to a friend or a family member?

Is there an elderly person in your apartment unit you can help with a chore? Volunteer as a teacher’s aid in the special needs class at church?

I humble myself today in the sight of you, oh Lord.
