The Self-Emptying of Jesus

Part 4 of The Real Jesus

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

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! (Philippians 2:3-8).

The true spirit (attitude) of Christmas is humble self-sacrifice. Imitate the Christ of Christmas.
