Philippians 2:8
Obedient Unto Death

8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

In appearance He was truly human, not a superman.
In attitude towards man, He was humble, not a proud man.
In acceptance He was obedient to death, not a bitter man.
This is what God wants from me.

In life He felt hunger, pain and weariness.
In love He saw the value of others, even those overlooked.
In light He shed hope in the darkness of souls.
This is what God wants from me.

In service He used what was His alone for others.
In sacrifice He gave everything He had, even Himself.
In suffering He did not complain but trusted God.
This is what God wants from me.

In public He lived, walked, acted and spoke with dignity.
In private He taught, mentored and led with integrity.
In personal life He prayed, wept, trusted God implicitly.
This is what God wants from me.

In death He was quietly submissive to God’s will.
In darkness He was silently enduring all God gave Him to do.
In departing He was confident all was accomplished.
This is what God wants from me.

“God my Father, give me a faithful heart to be obedient to Thy every desire and fulfill it to Thy glory. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
