“Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men”. Phil 2:6-7
Everyone grows up to become a ‘master’. Experience, expertise and exposures tend to make a man a master. Exploits done for the Lord will automatically place a status on your life. Years of service, years of ministry, years of revelation from God seek to make a ‘master’ out of you. ‘Masters’ are men who direct but for Jesus, this was not so. He took upon Himself the form of a servant! This again was His personal choice.
No one imposed it on Him. He took it upon Himself. This is the crux of the matter. If you desire to remain a master it is your right. Years of service have probably brought it on you; exposure, experience, expertise and exploits have made and carved out such a seat for you. But you can lay it aside to continually tie around yourself the towel of service . . .
