I.

The coming of Christ was with real sacrifice.  God’s Son, on an equality with the Father.  But he left the courts of glory to dwell among us, subject to life’s limitations and sufferings.

II.

To appear in his glory was his right, or privilege; but he did not; he laid aside his glory, emptied himself of it, and appeared in the likeness of man, becoming a servant.  God clothed in human flesh!  What condescension!

III.

“Humbled himself,” submitted to the scoffs of man and the power of death, even the most shameful men could inflict–all out of love for us poor sinful creatures.

IV.

What must sin be in the sight of God, seeing [that] it required so deep abasement in Jesus Christ to make atonement for it.  Surely we can never again think lightly of sin!

Let us exalt his name, yielding our lives to him to serve one another in his name.

GEORGE WASHINGTON BARRETT
