    For me this passage is about humility and obedience, a major concept for understanding the Gospel, “he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” This was the example that Jesus gave us to follow. Humility and obedience are the new norm or up and the reward is God’s Grace and Love, and exaltation.

    The mind of Christ is my North Star and my plumb bob. It gives me direction and alignment with God. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate my desire greater than my achievement, but “I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).

    I buried these verses in my heart a long time ago, so that I can “rememberize” them when I need them. All of the verses JD mentions in his reflections are “life verses” for me.
