You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11 NLT)

God came to earth as Jesus Christ. Fully human. Fully divine.

He walked among the people he came to reach. He healed. He taught. He loved.

And so it is recorded forevermore, Jesus Christ came for you and me so all will know the love of God personally.

In his death, Jesus showed how deep that love is.

And now we all can know and bow before our King.

On this Good Friday, may we deeply know this love. May we fully understand this sacrifice. May we experience the grace and joy of knowing our Father in heaven, shown to us through the Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
