Pour Me Out

Philippians 2:5-7

Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself…

Jesus did not exult himself in his Divinity…but emptied himself in all that is human so that he could show us the way to true happiness and wholeness in a life of self-giving. He did not hoard the immense love of God but allowed it to pour forth through him to all. Do we take his example and empty ourselves…letting go of our egocentric desires so that our true selves can emerge to serve our fellow sisters and brothers?  Or…do our egos have control of our lives causing us to grasp for more and more stuff and to live more and more in the delusion that our egos are at the center of the universe? The truth is…the more I “die to myself” (ego) the more Christ’s life (my true self) comes to life. How am I being called to detach from power, prestige and possessions (false self)…so that I am free to be me (true self)?
