Message of the Day: Jesus Entered Our World To Save Us!

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 2:8, NKJV)

Judaism highly regards obedience to the point of death in stories about its martyrs. Not only was Jesus “like” a human being, but He also took on the actual outward characteristics of a man.

Humility reached its climax when he humbled and was obedient to the point of death on the cross. Crucifixion was the most degrading form of execution, reserved for non-Roman criminals who were slaves or free persons of the lowest status.

Jesus became a man, and took to himself the restrictions and difficulties of human nature. However, unlike all other human beings, he did not sin. He entered our world in order to save us from our sins. As a servant he spent his life on earth doing whatever his Father told him to do. Even though it meant that he suffered and eventually died on cross.
