Philippians 2: 6-9 (NRSVA)

6 who, though he was in the form of God,
    did not regard equality with God
    as something to be exploited,
7 but emptied himself,
    taking the form of a slave,
    being born in human likeness.
And being found in human form,
8     he humbled himself
    and became obedient to the point of death—
    even death on a cross.

9 Therefore God also highly exalted him
    and gave him the name
    that is above every name,

The Gospel is summed up in these four verses. God in Jesus of Nazareth became one of us. He became blind to his own glory, stepping into our world, into our darkness, so that we might in turn step out of our darkness into his world of light and receive our spiritual sight.

Here is another Bogle Band song highlighting the hope that Jesus Christ brings to the world ‘When Grace Comes Into Town’, listen on the Sanctuary First site: sanctuaryfirst.org.uk/music/article/when-grace-comes-to-town

 

PRAYER:

 

Lord,

You became nothing

That we might become something

You entered into our darkness

That we might never be alone

You entered our death

That we might learn to live

You embraced our sorrow

That we might feel joy

You absorbed our hate

That we might learn to love

You walked out of our darkness

That we might follow you into the light
