He Became One of Us – Philippians 2:5-8
Christ became man. This is the reason for the season. In this sermon Pastor David explains the steps Christ took downward from heaven, starting with His birth as a human baby and leading to His willing, obedient death on the cross. This is what Christmas is all about! Ultimately, Christmas is a celebration that Holy God in love became perfect man to bear our blame. On the cross He took our sin so that by His death we might live.
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (Philippians 2:5-8)
