SNATCHING VICTROY FROM THE JAWS OF DEFEAT

May 24, 2016

Philippians 2:8-11

 

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father

 

 

LESSON

 

Jesus Christ appeared to other people just as any other man. This was another aspect of His humility. Jesus further “humbled Himself by becoming obedient” to His Father’s will, “to the point of” laying down His life in death. The advance on Christ’s example, in this verse, is the extent to which He was willing to go in humble submissiveness, in obedience to His Father’s will. All believers should be willing to do the same.

In view of the Son’s submission to the depths of humiliation, God the Father raised Him to the height of exaltation. The purpose of the Father’s having given the Son such great exaltation, and a “name” suitable to such a position, is that “every” person “will bow” in submission to His authority.

Every year the world shuts down on the 25th of December, but why? If it is just about gifts and family would this happen? Was Jesus fully God? Was He fully man? And if so… why would Jesus go to all the trouble of being both?
