“He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.”
The master that treats his servant like a son will eventually see that servant change his outlook of what he should or should not be doing. Some things will suddenly seem beneath him as he considers himself too worthy to humble himself. There are some true servants that are an exception to this Truth.
Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God willingly chose to humble Himself and become a Servant.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
In the context of this passage, the Apostle Paul was exhorting the church of Philippi to be like Christ. The same applies to us today…”Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus”.
He was not worried about what others thought of Him.
He was willing to make Himself the Servant of Servants.
He was robed in human flesh just like us.
He tempted just like us, yet He did not sin.
He humbled Himself far beneath Who He truly was and is.
He was obedient, even unto death.
He suffered and willingly died on the cross for us.
The Servant of Servants is our Ultimate Example of what it means to serve.
If we will choose to let the mind of Christ be in us, we too can become a true servant for His glory.
