Humble & Obedient Lord
think about it.
What do you learn about Christ's view of the cross from Philippians 2:5-8? What does He gain as a result (2:9-11)? What are the keys to "having the mind of Christ" in your life? According to Ephesians 2:11-13, what was our condition before the cross? How did Jesus change that (2:13-18)? How has Jesus brought you peace?
We're all very familiar with Jesus and what He did for us. But how often do we really stop and consider it all--Jesus leaving, giving up heaven and God the Father to come to earth in the likeness of man to live with us and ultimately die for our sins? Paul's words in Philippians 2:5-11 were good for me to read on this Good Friday because they not only highlighted Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, but how He humbled himself and was obedient in getting to the cross. (Thank you so much, Jesus!)
So what will you do with this reminder of Jesus' humbleness, obedience and sacrifice this weekend? Tami W.
