Up and Down
If you tire of having to come so low remember it is because you have hoisted yourself so high.

Thank you for this, sir.

If the God whom we serve HUMBLED HIMSELF, and in a fashion infinitely beyond our comprehension, how can we, creatures of dust, even think of doing otherwise?


Php 2:5
Let this mind be, in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Php 2:6
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

Php 2:7
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Php 2:8
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

This word from Isaiah is staggering:

Just as many were astonished at you, My people,
So His appearance was marred more than any man
And His form more than the sons of men.
Isaiah 52:14

It's "astonishing" humility!
