{Day 13}: Here With Us

Physical Fitness:

100 stairs
10 super-slow squats
10 super-slow crunches
10 super-slow reverse push-ups
30 quick calf raises {straight, in, out}
1:00 plank

Spiritual Fitness:

I was listening to Joy William's beautiful song Here With Us in the car and that word "servant-king" hit me like a ton of bricks.

Think about it. It is a contradictory term.


1. a person employed by another, especially to perform domestic duties.
1. a male sovereign or monarch; a man who holds by life tenure, and usually by hereditary right, the chief authority over a country and people.

How can a person simultaneously be a servant and a king?

How can one lower himself enough to give up his life for another and yet at the same time rule over all?

How can someone be fully man and fully God?

It makes no sense.

And yet he did it just for you.

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became 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,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

{Philippians 2:5-11}
