The One Who Poured Himself Out

No Comments

Commenting on Philippians chapter 2, Gordon Fee writes, "Here we see why the 'scandal of the cross' was so central to [Paul's] understanding of everything Christian. For in 'pouring himself out' and 'humbling himself to death on the cross,' Christ Jesus has revealed the character of God himself. Here is the epitome of God-likeness: the pre-existent Christ was not a "grasping, selfish' being, but one whose love for others found its consummate expression in 'pouring himself out,' in taking on the role of a slave, in humbling himself to the point of death on behalf of those so loved."
- Paul's Letter to the Philippians, page 197
Quoted in the sermon "Servanthood" by Mark Mitchell.
