SERMON NOTES & SCRIPTURE REFERENCES


Scripture reference: Philippians 2:5-11

 


THESE VERSES ARE A POEM:

 

    The poem is clearly telling the story about Jesus with the cross at its center.

 

    The cross is the means of victory over all the powers of this world.

 

    The poem as presented in its context is setting out the  foundation and the model for the way Jesus’ followers are to behave in relation to one another.

 

The decision Jesus made was not a decision to stop being divine; it was a decision about what it really

meant to BE divine.

 

WHAT DID JESUS EMPTY HIMSELF OF?

 

· He gave up His immunity to the burden of law… born under the law. (Galatians 4:4)

 

· He gave up His riches. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

 

· He gave up his heavenly glory. (John 17:5)

 

· He gave up His independent exercise of authority. (John 6:38)

 

Jesus changed the cross from the symbol of a human empire’s power to take life, into a symbol of the suffering love of God to give life.

 

This was not a promotion; it was a vindication.

 

 

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
