Devotional 4: Loving Like Jesus - Philippians 2:1-11

Hello Metro,

Welcome to our online devotional for our Philippians series. This devotional is intended to be a simple way for you to go a little deeper in our study, and to remind yourself from week to week what the Holy Spirit is illuminating to you. It would also make for a great conversation over coffee with a friend! Taking a little time just once per week to review what you heard and to read the passage over again will take God’s Word into you more deeply, or as Paul said to the Colossians, to “let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly.” Each devotional also includes the worship song we concluded each sermon with. Click on the link to take a few minutes of private worship. May this devotional be an encouragement to you and your walk with Christ.

Devotional 4: Loving Like Jesus – Philippians 2:1-11

1. Read the passage slowly.
  • What stands out to you?
  • What are we being asked to do in the first few verses? How do we do it?

2. Consider

“Do nothing, then, from either selfish ambition or conceit. Disobeying this command is self-idolatry. Instead, “in humility count others more significant than yourselves” (Phil. 2:3). If you don’t think that’s hard, I don’t think you’re human.” – Matt Chandler, pg. 53
3. Prayer and Praise
  • Personalize the passage into a prayer.
  • Suggested Worship Song: “Enough,” Chris Tomlin
