“Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:8).
Jesus is God in the flesh. Yes, that is what this says. That is what Scripture clearly says. Those who deny this do not receive the report of the witnesses. He who created all things became as one of us to make straight the way for our becoming as He is. Not God, but a child of God. All who are in Christ are a new creation. He has made this possible and we see the first glimmering of what He is doing.
Jesus, You are the example of what it means to be the new man. You have not only made the way possible, but have given the example of being submissive, even unto death. In Your example, teach me what it means to be faithful. In Your example, teach me how to live this new life You have given me through grace. Guide me into the way of life which You have established.
Lord Jesus, You are the way, truth, and life. There is no other way to live. There is no other truth. There is no other life. Guide me in the way of true and everlasting life so that I would not be caught up in the insanity of this age. The world carries on as if they created and are recreating themselves. Through You alone do all things have their being. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may now and always walk with You. Amen.
