Advent In Action – Week 2 — Humble Ourselves

Advent In Action – Week 2 — Humble Ourselves

Jesus Who is King of all kings; He is God Himself shows humility by leaving His, throne, home, Father to become a tiny, helpless, human baby during this season! Imagine a King doing that for you, for all the world! Yes, everyone! That’s what JESUS did because HE loves us! Think of some ways you will not brag or boast about yourself. Actions you can take to show humility and wanting to more like Jesus.

Scripture reading, memorization—Philippians 2:5-11

“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.”

Advent In Action

Let’s humble ourselves this Advent season by:

  • Meekly kneeling before GOD in daily prayer
  • Allowing someone to go ahead of us in the line
  • Quickly acknowledging causing hurt; honestly apologizing and seeking forgiveness from GOD and people
  • Cleaning up a mess made by another
  • Completing a chore or task that is not yours
  • Carrying a package; holding a door

Week 2 Advent Prayer

Dear LORD, You are so, so high! You are a King ! You are The Son of God equal with God! We can hardly understand how You could love us so much that You would push all that aside to come to earth! You showed us how to live and obey our Father God; how to love all people even those who hurt us on purpose. Thank You! Because of what You did, God gave You a name higher, greater, bigger, better than any name anywhere. You are on Your throne right next to Your Father now. Help us to follow your example. We love You Lord. Amen
