"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich." - 2 Corinthians 8 V9

"Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men." - Philippians 2 V7

Jesus Christ our Lord, being God He took the form of man and He emptied Himself and took the form of a bondservant. He who created the heavens and the earth humbled Himself and died a cruel death to save His people. This truth is so profound that we cannot fathom it in our finite minds. How can God die for own, His creation? Many get offended or hard to believe this truth, but we who believe in the Son of God know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. He became poor for our sakes that we may become rich through His poverty. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
