Read Philippians 2:5-11
Sometimes we hear stories of celebrities giving up their status and money in order to live a normal life. Which is crazy to think about, right? How can someone give up so much? Especially when most of us are trying so hard to build up a name for ourselves and to have everything we need (and a lot of what we want).
Jesus is the ultimate example of sacrifice and humility. He had had literally everything. Being God, Jesus was all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-loving. But he chose to set aside all of the fame and fortune that comes with being God in order to die a humiliating and painful death. Why?
He did this because it was the only way we could be saved. He did it because of his love for you, me, and our world.
And there is no one more worthy of worship than him.
Jesus, I praise your great and beautiful name. Thank you for loving me so much.
