for everyone Cyber Church site will shut down Dec.1
Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself.
(“OUR” Father) He had equal status with God
(Who art) but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what.
Not at all.
(In Heaven) When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity
(Hallowed “BE”) and took on the status of a slave, became human!
(Thy Name) Having become human,
(Thy Kingdom Come) he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process.
(Thy Will “BE” Done”) He didn’t claim special privileges.
(“Give us this day”) Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life
(“OUR” Daily Bread”) and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.
(“Forgive us “OUR” debts”) Because of that obedience,
(“As we forgive) God lifted him high and honored him far beyond anyone or anything,
(“OUR” Debtors”) ever, so that all created beings in heaven and on earth—even those long ago dead and buried—
(“Lead us”) will bow in worship before this Jesus Christ,
(“not into temptation”) and call out in praise that he is the Master of all,
(“but deliver us from evil”) to the glorious honor of God the Father.
(Thine is the Kingdom, power and glory forever. AMEN!) PHIL. 2:5-11
