In Christian theology, kenosis is the “self-emptying” of Jesus’ own will and becoming entirely receptive to God’s divine will.

Kenosis, relative to the human nature, denotes the continual epiclesis, the “invocation” or “calling down from on high,” and self-denial of one’s own human will and desire.

Extending the concept to the Master and slave relationship, the slave exists as a surrogate for the will of the Master. The slave invokes the Master’s will and eliminates the slave’s own desire, until those desires are that of the Master.
