Down the Ladder

October 7, 2018 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Together: On Mission for Christ

Scripture: Philippians 2:5–2:11

Thesis: Following Jesus requires actually following Jesus (2.5)



  • Jesus did not exploit his status (2.6)

    • Will we leverage our status for ourselves, or for others?

  • Jesus humbled himself, then humbled himself further (2.7-8)

    • Wherever you go, Jesus has gone lower (2.8, Jn. 13)


Do we trust Jesus enough to follow where he led?



  • (God’s “Hint”): Therefore, God exalted him to the highest place (2.9-11)


Take Home Idea: The Resurrection is the proof that the way to greatness and glory in God’s kingdom is through humility and service to others.
