Philippians 2: 5-7
"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men." ESV
Jesus is God. He left His eternal glory as God behind and allowed Himself to be born into our world as a human. God in a human form. He didn't do this to see what it was like to be human, He already knows all things. He came to show us God in human form, to tell us how to defeat the enemy, and to give us the promise that if we believe, we will be with Him because He then went back to His eternal glory as God.
Lord, our limited minds just can't imagine this great and glorious love that You would leave Your place as God and be born in a animal shelter as a human so that we could leave this cursed world and be with You in Your eternal glory. We can never repay You, but we can give our lives over to You so that You can work through us to bring others to this infinite love and eternal life. We magnify and praise Your name, Amen.
