He made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:7-8
What was it like for Him to go from having angels, the elders, the four living creatures falling at His feet in awe and adoration? To go from that high place of majesty, authority and governance only to end up, washing the dirty feet of your disciples?
What was it like to have crowns of gold laid before His feet, only to go to the place where there is a woman washing them and drying them with her hair?
What was it like to have a perfect frame in heaven, a heavenly body full of perfection, uncreated and then to take on weakness for the first time. To be bruised and crushed.
To go from speaking words and having creation come into being only to come to earth and feel the pain of a hammer smashing His thumb or the splinters of the wood as this carpenter built with His hands?
Did He subject himself to sickness? Did he eat some bad food and have it turn His stomach?
What exactly was it like to dine with the father at the heavenly table to then come to earth and taste the food here? Was it bland in comparison?
What was it like to go from a city full of light, to subject yourself to darkness and night?
What was it like to create His own parents and then make Himself subject to them? What restraint and humbleness did it take?
He is the creator of the universe and He chose to put Himself in the midst of His creation. What a beautiful, humble example He is. There is NO other God like Him.

When it comes to the Lord’s mercy, He doesn’t give us leftovers from the previous day; it’s new mercies every single day. This requires a daily response of thankfulness and gratefulness.
When we sing to the Lord it suppresses unbelief that is in our hearts and reinforces truth.
