Message Title: A Citizen’s Attitude (Philippians 2:5-11)

Theme Verse: (Philippians 1:27a NLT) Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ.

(Philippians 2:5 NIV) Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.

(Colossians 3:1-3 NIV) Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

(Philippians 2:5-11 NIV) 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. 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, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

(Colossians 1:16-18a NIV) For by Him all things were created; hings in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for himHe is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church

(Philippians 2:6 NIV) Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,

 

 2. Christ’s Humility in becoming a .

(Philippians 2:7a NIV) but made himself nothing,

 – He gave up His heavenly

 (John 17:5 NIV) And now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence with the glory that I had with You before the world began.

 – He gave up independent

(John 5:30 NIV) By Myself I can do nothing.

(Hebrews 5:8 NIV) He learned obedience from what He suffered.

 – He gave up

(Acts 10:38 NLT) God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

(John 14:12 NLT) “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works because I am going to be with the Father.”

 – He gave up eternal

 (2 Corinthians 8:9 NIV) He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor

(John 7:53 NIV) Then each went to his own home. But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

(Philippians 2:7 NIV) but he made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

(Luke 22:27 NIV) I am among you as One who serves. He made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

(Matthew 20:28 NIV) The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.

 3. Christ’s Humility in

 (Philippians 2:8 NIV) And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross!

 4. Christ’s

(Philippians 2:9-11 NIV) Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

(Philippians 2:5-8 NIV) 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. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!

(1 Peter 5:6 NIV) Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.

(Mark 8:34 NIV) If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up His cross, and follow Me.

(1 Peter 1:21-23 NLT) For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps. He never sinned, nor ever deceived anyone. He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly.
