If you’re following the schedule, you should read these chapters today: Exodus 39, John 18, Proverbs 15, Philippians 2. Click on any of those references to see all the passages in one long page on BibleGateway. If you can't do all the readings today, read Philippians 2.
After a great weekend of worship remembering the Lord’s death, burial, and resurrection I invite you to reflect on the amazing humility of Christ. Even though he was entitled to all worship and obedience, he acted with a servant’s heart in order to purchase our redemption. How often do we act entitled when we really aren’t or refuse to give up anything to serve others? Yet one of the marks of Christlikeness is a desire to serve others instead of ourselves (vv. 3-4) without complaining or arguing (v.14). It also means, I might add, serving without resentment about being in the place of the servant.
