WWJD? What would Jesus do?

 

Philippians 2

 

Phil 2:1-4 MSG

1-4 If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.

 

Phil 2:5 MSG- “Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself.”

 

NLT- “You should have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”

 

Jesus showed us how to…

[1]   selflessly!

 

Phil 2:6-7 NIV

Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.

 

Question- How can I live selflessly right now?

 

Jesus showed us how to…

[2]   humility!

 

Phil 2:8 NIV

And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—

 

Humility opens the door for grace and healing to flow when there’s a relational standoff because of hurt and pride.

 

Question- How can I embrace humility right now?

 

Jesus showed us how to…

[3]    sacrificially!

 

Phil. 2:8 NIV

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

 

MSG

 “he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.”

 

Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT

“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.”

 

Question- How can I love sacrificially right now?

 

* Imagine…how attractive the love and hope of Jesus would become to our hurting world, if the people who follow Him look, talk, respond, and love more and more…like Him!
