CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS: SACRIFICE

Who, although He existed in the form of God,did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of at bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.Philippians 2:6-8
It is a remarkable thing to think that the Son of God would humble Himself as much as He did for my benefit. Jesus humbled Himself by taking the form of a man, and allowed Himself to be beaten, mutilated, murdered, and separated from the Father so that I could be united with Him, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. All this for rebellious creatures who have proven to be a sorrow in His side time and time again.
Jesus showed us what it means to be selfless. He who knew no sin became sin for us. He did what He didn’t have to do, but His own love impelled Him to be the sacrifice that once and for all satisfied the debt of sin. What the blood of goats and bulls could not do, His blood covered all for all of time. By His stripes we are healed.
Let us all look at our lives, and if we are selfless like Jesus was selfless. Do we go out of our way for the good of others? Do we do what inconveniences us to reach out to others? How much of ourselves do we truly give? Let us all resolve to be better examples of Christ’s sacrifice.
