He humbled Himself


"He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death—even the death of the cross!" Philippians 2:8

He did this in the exceeding riches of His grace!

Though He was rich—yet for our sakes He became poor!

Though He was high—yet for our sakes He stooped low.

In measuring the depth to which our Lord descended—we have to take into account the height from which He came. But of that height we can form no adequate conception. "Who can by searching find out God? Who can find out the the Almighty unto perfection?" The Lord Jesus declared that He and the Father are one.

From Deity—He stooped to humanity.

From universal rule—He stooped to the place of a servant.

From the highest glory—He stooped to shame and contempt.

From the throne of Heaven—He stooped to the cross of Calvary!

This He did to save a rebellious race—to save sinners—to save me, even me!

Oh, my soul, look into this mystery of love—and wonder and adore!
