Hi friends! Today I’m over at Scripture Dig talking about one of the “I came” statements of Jesus. We all know He came to die – and He did! But there’s more, sweet friend. Oh there’s so much more. 
After reading the beginning of today’s post, please click over to Scripture Dig and read the rest of it there. 🙂
There is a lot about God we just don’t understand. Like how He has always existed. No beginning. No end. Just always. Or like how He knows every thought of our hearts and the number of hairs on our heads. Nothing hid. He knows it all. Or like how He is Creator and Sustainer of all that is or ever will be. No one can trump Him. Nothing can stump Him and nothing can undo what He has done. He is all powerful.
Yet, in Philippians 2:5-8 we are told – “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 made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Emphasis mine)
Can you fathom that?! The God of all creation demonstrated what obedience looks like when He placed Himself in a cradle to begin His journey to the cross.


  1. Great post, Stephanie! I skipped on over and finished out the lesson. Very well said. Obedience is hard, but God is so very faithful.

  2. Thanks for popping over Donna! Examining Jesus' obedience was truly an eye-opener for me! I just love how He loves us!
