In the message of last Sunday, the Lord directed us to the ants to learn valuable lessons of Team work, striving for competence, diligence and practice of delayed gratification. All these lessons were meant to make us wise and help us receive insights that will elevate and launch us into greatness in life. In the text, lazy or slothful people were being advised to stop their laziness which would no doubt lead to poverty and demotion in life. Instead, they should tow the path that will lead to their greatness as they learn from the ants. We see clearly in our text that slothfulness is a great enemy of elevation. What then is slothfulness? What are the consequences of being slothful? Let’s go back to our text.

Philippians 2:5-11 is one of the most important Christological passages in the New Testament. It records a vital statement about the divine nature, redemptive work, and sovereign authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. The text makes this statement about Jesus Christ in two parts: the humiliation of Christ (Phil. 2:5-8) and the exaltation of Christ (Phil. 2:9-11).
Divine Elevation of Gentiles

The word Gentile is an English translation of the Hebrew word goyim (“people, nations”) and the Greek word ethne (“nations, people groups, people”). The Latin Vulgate translated these words as gentilis, and this word was then carried over into English as “Gentile.” The term refers to a person who is not a Jew. Gentiles were long seen as enemies of the Jewish people, yet Christ provided good news for both Jews and non-Jews. Paul praised the Lord’s goodness in his letter to the church in Ephesus. It is, therefore, from this letter that we want to learn how God elevated the Gentiles. In the first place, Paul speaks of the condition of the Gentiles before Christ came (Eph. 2:11-12). One, the Gentiles were called the uncircumcision by those who laid claim to that circumcision which is a physical and man-made thing. Two, the Gentiles had no hope of a Messiah. Three, the Gentiles were aliens from the society of Israel. Four, the Gentiles were strangers from the covenants on which the promises were based. Five, the Gentiles were without hope and without God. Second, Paul deals with how God dealt with the hatred and united the Jew and the Gentile (Eph. 2:13-18).

Prior to the coming of Jesus Christ into the world to die for our sins, Satan had a field day. The Bible presents him as having a highly organized army of demonic beings through whom he brings everyone under his control and enslavement (Eph. 2:1-3; 6:12; John 10:10).
