Emptied

Emptied

Philippians 2:1-13
Using what is probably one of the oldest Christian hymns, Paul paints a beautiful picture of Christ emptying himself. But what does it mean to empty one’s self? And if we are to have the mindset of Christ, how are we to empty ourselves as well? Perhaps the act of emptying requires faith that we will be filled by “God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for God’s good pleasure.”

Questions:

  1. What does it mean that Christ emptied himself?
  2. How can we have the same mind as Christ and empty ourselves?
  3. What are some practical ways that you can empty yourself?
  4. What prevents us from emptying ourselves?

Sing with Us:

While we cannot sing in our in-person worship, we can be united in mind and heart by listening to and singing the same songs while we are apart.
