Phil. 2: 5-8, The Great “Kenosis” and Incarnation of Jesus Christ!

October 28, 2016

The mind that was in Christ Jesus is the lowly mind. He ever sought the glory of His Father and the blessing of His people. In His gracious condescension He who had every right to command became servant of all. Though in the form of God from Eternity He did not consider equality with God the Father something to be retained, but He divested Himself of the outward semblance of Deity, the glory that He had with the Father before the world was, and took a bondman’s form. Having become Man He humbled Himself yet farther, stooping to death, and such a death, that of the cross (the Roman cross). This is the One whose example the Spirit brings before us, that our ways may be somewhat conformed to His!

‘Thou would like wretched man be made in everything but sin: That we as like Thee might become… As we unlike had been.’

We glory in the ‘Lord of Glory’, Amen!
