The Greatest Story Ever Told
(Adapted from the sermon, Jesus the Master Storyteller)
“You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”Philippians 2:5-11 (NLT)
The greatest story ever told is not a fictional tale but a historical reality. It is the story of Jesus Christ, the Master Storyteller who became the central character of human history. The passage in Philippians 2:5-11 paints a vivid picture of Jesus’ humility and exaltation, illustrating the selfless journey He undertook for our salvation.
Despite being God, Jesus chose humility, taking on the role of a servant and ultimately sacrificing Himself on the cross. This act of love and obedience led to His exaltation, as every knee will one day bow and every tongue declare His lordship.
- How does Jesus’ humility and sacrifice in this passage impact your understanding of His character and mission?
- Reflect on the significance of Jesus’ exaltation. What does it mean for Him to have the name above all names?
- In what ways can you align your attitude with the humility and love exemplified by Jesus?
PERSONAL APPLICATION: Consider the humility and sacrificial love of Jesus, and strive to emulate His attitude in your own life, humbly serving others.
LOVE IN ACTION: As you reflect on the greatest story ever told, seek opportunities to share the message of Jesus’ humility and exaltation with others, inspiring them to embrace the same attitude.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we are in awe of the greatest story ever told—the story of Jesus, who humbled Himself for our sake and was exalted to the highest honor. May His humility and love inspire us to serve others with a similar attitude. Help us share this incredible story with those who have yet to hear it. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
