Just For You-Wednesday Word

Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]
Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained Philippians 2:5-6 (Amplified)

The Lord Jesus had no need to try and hold on to His godliness. Whether He was in heaven with the Father or on Earth with us, He was still God. Jesus knew that changing His position did not change who He was. Nothing could do that. He is God through and through. And nothing could ever change that.
If you are a child of God, then nothing can change that. God may be calling you to a place that seems beneath you. God may be leading you to something uncomfortable. However when you know who you are as a child of God none of that matters. ‘The Message’ says this very clearly:

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. Philippians 2:5-6

Your position does not define you. You are a child of God no matter what!
