Free Book Contest - Sermon Title

Help me with my sermon title for Sunday and win a free book. I'll give away a copy of John Piper's newest biography book, Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ, to the person who comes up with the best title for my Philippians 2:5-11 sermon.

However, I'm not just looking for any random title (that would be easy for this majestic passage). I'm looking for one that fits the text AND fits with the other titles for my Philippians series. Here is where we have been so far:

Philippians 1:1-8 - Gospel Partnership
Philippians 1:9-11 - Gospel Prayer
Philippians 1:12-18 - Gospel Advancement
Philippians 1:19-25 - Gospel Ambition
Philippians 1:27-30 - Gospel Living
Philippians 2:1-4 - Gospel Unity

You can see where I'm going. I would like a title that matches the others ("Gospel _____"), and that fits Philippians 2:5-11.

So, if you want to help me out and have a good chance to win Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ, post your suggestion in the comments or send me an e-mail with your entry. If 2 people submit the same thing, the one who made the suggestion first will win the book. Any questions?

"Gospel Glory" - because the cross work of Christ (gospel) results in the glory of God.

Gospel Servanthood-Jesus became a servant so he can give His life for us.

"Gospel Greatness"

b/c Jesus didnt discredit greatness, he redefined it.

I was going to say "Gospel Humility" before I read when other had commented on this. Ken beat me to this. OUCH!

My second choice is "Gospel Servantherd", but someone got this before me again.

My third choice "Gospel Servant-heart" or "Gospel Obedient".

1) Gospel Sacrifice
2) Gospel Thinking
3) Gospel Abasement
4) Gospel Descent
5) Gospel Reputation (KJV says "made Himself of no reputation")

Gospel-shaped? To be shaped, to be formed by the gospel is to be empty of all that does not transform us. Jesus was willing to be formed into one of us, to empty himself to the point of death.
