The Downward Mobility of Servanthood

The Downward Mobility of Servanthood

The “good life” that often captures our imagination is centered on upward mobility and getting ahead. But the mindset to which Jesus calls us is just the opposite. What does downward mobility mean for His followers?

Philippians 2:5-11

Philippians 2:5-11 / New International Version (NIV)

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.
