Day 39


And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:8)


It is hard for us to even grasp how, in his humanness and being like us, Jesus would fully submit himself to God’s plan, especially when he knew it led to a brutal death on a cross. But this obedience is what has saved us.


Jesus, sometimes we find it hard to humble ourselves even to give an apology or put another’s need before our own. But You came all the way down from heaven to this fallen, messed up world in obedience to Your Father’s plan for redemption in order to save us all. Help me to live a life that is thankful of that.
