Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! - Philippians 2:6-8
Philippians 2 tells us to have the same attitude that Jesus had by emptying himself and taking the form of a servant for the sake of the world. The cross step in the Pathway combines your identity found in Christ with the self-emptying attitude of Jesus and gives you the freedom to serve God in all ways, including partnering in Restoration Vision initiatives at Highland.
One characteristic of the nature of God is that God is lovingly working to restore all of creation. There are many ways to serve in the Restoration Vision which join God in this eternally important work of restoring Highland, Abilene, and the world. We encourage you to fill out a card at the tables in the atrium to help take the next step in the Pathway and get connected to ways to serve in the Restoration Vision.
