Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.

Philippians 2:5-8 MSG


This made me think – a lot. There’s much to say about Jesus coming to earth to join us. Walking with us, talking with us, eating with us.

For a change, you might consider writing your own reflection about this. Imagine yourself in the company of Jesus, perhaps having a meal with him along with some others. How would it feel? What might he say? What would you say?
