Obedience to the Death of the Cross

 

Philippians 2:4-8

“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross,” Philippians 2:8.

Human beings hate anything that denies us the opportunity to have things our on way. We want what we want, how we want it and when we want it. If anyone has ever raised a child, then he knows this from personal experience. We become this way early in life and without intervention; we stay this way. Scripture calls this sin. We fall short of the glory of God because we insist that our desires trump His desires.

In our passage, we see the fact that God sent His Son for the sole purpose of redeeming us from the penalty of our unrighteousness. God loved us from eternity past, while we loved ourselves and, in fact, hated Him!

While Jesus is fully God, it is the actions of Jesus as a full and complete human being that are truly astounding if we only consider them. Jesus is God, just as much as He is fully Man. Yet, He willingly removed Himself from His rightful place with God the Father, entered into humanity and suffered the ugly and humiliating death of the Roman cross for no other reason than our salvation.

Here, Jesus clearly set the example for us that the needs of those we love (and that should be everyone,) are to be placed higher than our own. If we believe, how can we not appreciate the depth of that sacrifice on the part of our Lord and act accordingly?

JUST A THOUGHT: Jesus came from Heaven to give His 
all for us. How much are we willing to give back?
