Amazing to Think About I

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:5-8) That Jesus made the choice to leave a perfect existence in the beauty and bliss of heaven to live upon the earth for a time is amazing to think about. Now think about this: Jesus could have come as a rich, powerful ruler, but instead chose the life of the common man. And He was also tempted in every way as we are and yet remained sinless (Hebrews 4:15). He then bore the guilt of our sins in great humiliation upon the cross -all for us (1 Peter 2:24). It’s all amazing to think about. But the most amazing thing to think about is this: Jesus became like us so that we could become like Him (1 John 3:2) I He died for us; let’s live for him and we will have amazing things to think about for eternityl Edd Sterchi Broadway church of Christ Campbellsville, KY
