Christ is BOTH human and divine.  It’s a really big deal.

Trying to grasp the gravity of God’s action on the Cross is very difficult.

Who is Jesus?

Luke the Gospel in action 12:54-13:9 “The End of the Sermon”

It’s the end of a sermon by Jesus and a message about the “main thing”.

Psalms of Jesus 1

Hebrews chapter 1 is an interesting collection of quotes from the book of Psalms.  I am using it as a guidebook to my advent series the “Psalms of Jesus”.  Maybe more appropriately called a three week series on Hebrews Chapter 1 but very Psalms heavy.

 

This week Jesus:  The Son of God

Jesus is the most important person you can know

Humility

This great scripture has always had a profound impact on me. We just can’t ignore the importance of humility. It may not always come naturally but it is well worth the effort.

Philippians 2:1-7 NIV Philippians 2:1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

There’s this amazing thing about God on the one hand He absolutely must trumpet his Glory (or He is being selfish) but on the other He chooses; in Christ, to be humble. “Amazing love – how can it be?”

God is not like any of us.
