Taking the form of a servant and blogging (Phil 2:5-7)

"but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men." - Philippians 2:5-7

As I've been sorting through my feelings on blogging and this has been my thought process:

1. People read my blog. Cool. I should keep writing. I like that people read my writing.

2. As more people read I'll become like... internet famous. Which, while the lamest type of fame, is still cool.

3. I write under a pseudonym so I wont be able to become prideful.

4. I've become prideful.

5. I hope it still brings glory to the Lord and I'm not just a moron writing personal thoughts while leaving God out of the equation.


While, what I want to be thinking is:

1. People read my blog. Cool. I hope I'm writing things that are glorifying to God and edifying to these people.

2. As more people read my blog, more people will be blessed by the things I write which glorify God.

3. I hope people know this is a place that glorifies the Lord.


Note this verse in Philippians. HE WAS GOD PEOPLE! He was GOD and he was able to be humble and did not aspire to equality with God. I am not just mere mortal man, but LAME mere mortal man striving for INTERNET FAME! INTERNET respect... LAME!

We all know this verse... and probably the two verses preceding it... here the thought is in its entirety, "Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men." But pride is one of the hardest things NOT to live.

What does it look like to be a servant on the internet? I BEG an answer.
