Scripture Reading by Lady Pepper (Show Slide)

(Show Slide) Thank you Lady Pepper for the announcements and the reading of God’s Word.
Big Idea: Jesus gave up heaven to come to earth to live as a human and die as a human. Jesus chose humility, and living to serve others, offered up His life as a ransom for many. It was this act of love that caused Him to be given the name above all names.
Prayer: “Lord, help us to put others before ourselves, to be obedient and faithful to your high calling.”
This week subject is entitled

Passion - Humble Love

Scripture: Philippians 2:5-11, John 15:9-13, Romans 8:28-29


As we start our movement toward Easter with the series entitled passion,
Remember, while Jesus was hanging on the cross, it wasn’t the nails that kept Him there. It wasn’t the threat of the Roman legions or the hatred of the Jewish elite. Rather, it was His passion for humanity that led Him to take the punishment of our own sins upon Himself.
Jesus gave up His life so that we might have eternal life.
Pastors Illustration
Talk about a time you gave something up so that someone else could have it.
In 2 Corinthians 9 the Apostle Paul is talking about generosity and giving. He concludes the section by proclaiming, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Cor. 9:15) The gift He is talking about is, of course, Jesus. And it was a gift to all humanity that Jesus left His heavenly post to be with us.

Main Teaching

Let’s look together at a specific passage of scripture that helps us understand how Jesus displayed His passion for humanity while both on the earth and on the cross.
Turn with me to Philippians 2:5-11. This is the Apostle Paul writing, and here’s what he has to say about Jesus.
Read Philippians 2:5-11
Notice that Paul calls us to have the same mindset as Christ before we are told what that mindset is.
I wonder how many of us have some level of a conditional faith. “God, I will go and do what you are calling me to do, but only if it aligns with my own priority list, schedule, and comfort zone.” Paul, Knows better than anyone that those who are used by God for great things are often outside of their comfort zones. He knew that all of his life had to be surrendered to God.
Which begs the question for us today, have you surrendered everything you have to God? Have you surrendered your thoughts to Godyour mindset?

Think in Humility

George Bernard Shaw said, “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
And if you’re going to think like Christ and have the mindset of Christ, I imagine most of us here today, need some fairly drastic mental reform.
Thankfully, the Bible has some very specific instruction and encouragement about the mind and the thoughts therein.
One of the most well known comes from the book of Philippians which says, Phil 4:8
Philippians 4:8 NKJV
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
c. So often our thoughts wander off into deep and dark territory. We can get ourselves “stuck” somewhere and even begin to believe things that simply aren’t true. I’m sure there are many here today who would say they struggle with this very thing.
2. The antidote, Paul says, is to focus your thoughts on true things, noble things, praiseworthy things, pure and lovely things, anything that is admirable. Which is easier said than done obviously,
a. but it’s a good reminder for when the mind starts to wander. And it’s a great place to start if you want to have the mindset of Christ.
b. But the other encouragement, from Romans 12:2 gives us some extremely practical mindset advice: Rom 12:2
Romans 12:2 NKJV
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
c. conform to this world, isn’t going to give you the mindset of Christ. Instead, be transformed by the renewing of your mind, through the power of the Spirit through the reading of the scriptures and prayer. Then, you will better know the will of God
3. Remember the will of God was at the forefront of the mind of Christ.In the gospel of Luke we get a picture of Jesus praying to God on the Mount of Olives; Luke 22:42
Luke 22:42 ASV 1901
42 saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
a. Jesus was in anguish as he prayed. Even still, He humbled himself and gave himself to the will of God which led to the cross.

Act in Humility

Jesus had a humble mindset and posture. As Paul relates in our Philippians passage;
Philippians 2:6–7 ASV 1901
6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men;
Jesus acted in humility in the most unbelievable way. He did not count His Godly nature as something to take advantage of or hide behind.
Instead, He willingly chose to make Himself nothing by trading His Godly nature for that of a servant.
He acted in humility, became human, and was born into a poor family. And the rest they say, is history.
Pastor Illustration
One of the qualities Of being a chaplain Is Humility, which is fundamentally caring about others,
That means not thinking about yourself, but caring about the needs of others.
Being available for those that are hurting those that are facing health issues, and in some cases, end of life conditions.
The point being, how amazing it is when a person humbles themselves to serve and love others.)

Obey in Humility

2. One of the most important steps we can take as it relates to mirroring Christ’s humility is the step of obedience.
a. It’s one thing to act in a humble way toward others, but it’s another to obey humbly before God.
b. Paul says that when Jesus appeared in human form, He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Frequently, obedience may cost something while birthing something wonderful.
c. Do you remember the scene in scripture when Jesus is sentenced to death?
Read Mark 15:1-15
3. Even Pilate, the one who gets to decide what happens to Jesus, does not believe Jesus has done anything to deserve to die the death of a criminal.
a. And yet, He does. This is what obedience to the Father looked like for Jesus.
b. How often do we pray a similar prayer as Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane: “Lord, may your will be done?”
C. There is something humbling about realizing how incapable we are to save ourselves.We are called to entrust that part to Jesus’ sacrifice.
But what did Jesus’ obedience birth? The Bible makes it clear that Jesus did not stay dead. Instead, all of the pain and suffering in the life of Christ served a purpose, just as it does in ours. Do you believe God can use the hard times in your life for good?


Read Romans 8:28-29
Romans 8:28–29 ASV 1901
28 And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he foreknew, he also foreordained to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren:
All along, God was working in the life of Christ. The same is true for us. God is able to use every situation, every frustration, every obstacle, every last thing… for the good of those who love Him.
And as we learn to trust Him, we learn the value of obedience and faithfulness… Which leads us to look more and more like Christ.
Read John 15:9-13
In this passage Jesus invites His disciples, and us, to remain in His love and to keep His commandments.
He invites us to be obedient, and then He offers a new commandment…
to love one another as He has loved us.
To lay our lives down for others. Just like He did.
So consider the road of humility this coming week. Where are the areas in your life you need to think about others, put them first, and trade your life for theirs?
How can you lift others up, encourage them, and help them feel loved?
Let’s pray together.
John 3:16 NKJV
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Romans 10:13 NKJV
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you’d would like to receive Jesus today, please pray this prayer with all of us:
Lord I believe that Jesus is the son of God, and that He died On the cross for my sins and His resurrection from the dead gives me eternal life. I ask forgiveness of my sins, and I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen.

Lady Pepper Please Join Me


I want to take a few moments to give you the opportunity to ask forgiveness of any sin in your life.
Let us pray over the elements (Cross Exposed) in the name of the father, the son, and the Holy Ghost
Read first Corinthians 11:23- 26 - (Taking the elements together)
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;
24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” (take bread)
25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” (Take bread)
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
