A Collect to Take on the Nature of a Servant

Lord Jesus, who humbled himself and took on the nature of a servant, give us the grace to turn away from status and stature and to serve others in low estate, that we would be exalted in your kingdom and understand what it means to love and be loved, through you who was exalted to the right hand of the Father with the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ The greatest among you will be your servant. All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted.’ – Matthew 23:11-12
