He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death— even to death on a cross.
Philippians 2:8 HCSB
Like you and me, Jesus learned to obey as a child. Unlike you and me, however, Jesus didn’t part ways with obedience when the cost became unbearable. Think back to a time the pressure to give in to sin pushed you beyond your willingness to persevere. Jesus never once let temptation overtake him—not when he was tired, not when he was thirsty, not when he was hungry. If he loved you enough to obey even to the point of a brutal death on a cross, do you love him enough to follow him even as the personal cost goes up?🚦
