Good afternoon Church family
Many of you would be familiar with this scripture: “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:5-8
Last night at Bible study we were focusing on Jesus taking on human form. And it is often really hard to fully grasp what Jesus had to lay aside to come to our aid as the verse above describes. I shared with the group what a professor I was listening to on this subject had to say. He put it like this,“Jesus had to take off the cloak of the universe to come to us.” That blew me away and left me speechless, how incredible is our God and the efforts he makes for each one of us. It makes you want to pull out all the stops and serve Him wholeheartedly.
