The Humility of JESUS the SON of GOD

Philippians 2:6-8
King James Version
6 Who, 
being in the form of God, 
thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, 
and took upon him the form of a servant, 
and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, 
he humbled himself, 
and became obedient unto death, 
even the death of the cross.

Why is it difficult for me to follow any leader on earth?

Because they are not like JESUS, the SON of GOD, who took on the sins of the world.

Man looks after self.

Jesus looked after our souls.

This is the fifth post in the series of articles attesting to JESUS being the SON of GOD. 

Obedient to the end, the LORD Jesus offered us eternal life.

John 6:40
King James Version
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 
that every one which seeth the Son, 
and believeth on him, 
may have everlasting life: 
and I will raise him up at the last day.

Because the sheep (that's us) have gone astray, it was prophesied that Jesus would take the brunt of our sins.

Isaiah 53:6
King James Version
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; 
we have turned every one to his own way; 
and the Lord hath laid on him 
the iniquity of us all.

See how much the good shepherd loves us:

John 10:11
King James Version
11 I am the good shepherd: 
the good shepherd giveth his life 
for the sheep.

Are we worthy of such sacrifice?

Are we worthy of such love?

Why is it so important to know Jesus right now?

Why is it vital we believe JESUS is the SON of GOD?

John 3:18
King James Version
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: 
but he that believeth not is condemned already, 
because he hath not believed in the name 
of the only begotten Son of God.

Do you feel the urgency to accept Jesus in your heart?

Don't the signs of the times indicate significant changes to the world?

How much longer are you going to wait, before you truly accept JESUS in your heart?

Listen to His invitation:

Mark 1:15
King James Version
15 And saying, 
The time is fulfilled, 
and the kingdom of God is at hand: 
repent ye, 
and believe the gospel.

I follow Jesus, for He offered His life that I may be saved, from sins not His own.

2 Corinthians 5:21
King James Version
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, 
who knew no sin; 
that we might be made 
the righteousness of God in him.

I follow JESUS, the SON of GOD, for He and the FATHER are ONE.

John 10:30
King James Version
30 I and my Father are one.

I also follow Jesus because my heart told me to.

And it feels so very right in my heart.

I have found the peace, joy, and happiness the world could never give.

I found all that in CHRIST.
