Hark! The Herald Angels Sing #3

โ€œLet this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the crossโ€ย (Philippians 2:5-8 KJV).

The third verse of the classic Christmas carol highlights todayโ€™s Scripture.

โ€œMild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them spiritual birth.
Risen with healing in his wings,
Light and life to all he brings,
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace!โ€

Jesus Christ was literally the perfect example of living in fellowship with Father God. He did not make Himself the issue but rather glorified His Father who had sent Him. Yea, He said to His Father,ย โ€œNot as I will, but as thou wiltโ€ย (Matthew 26:39). What was Father Godโ€™s will? Check Hebrews 10:1-10.ย It was for Jesus to become a human that that human body die on that awful cross for our sins!

As our King James Bible says,ย โ€œWho, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.โ€ (Modern versions so butcher this passage, saying Jesus Christ โ€œdid not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing.โ€ย Blasphemy!)

The Bible says,ย โ€œFor the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lordโ€ย (Romansย 6:23). That man may die and live through Him, Jesus Christ died. That man may die and live through Him, Jesus Christ resurrected.ย There is no greater name than the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippiansย 2:10)! Friends, let us join the angels in praising Him! source
