Philippians 2:5-8 – The Foundation

Philippians 2:5-8
5
 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

-In Isaiah 28:16, Jesus Christ is called a “Sure Foundation”; a foundation by definition is the lowest load-bearing part of a structure.  Think about this; in order for Jesus to be our foundation, He had to get lower than all of us. He became human, but that wasn’t low enough; He lived a life of humble service, but that wasn’t low enough; He ultimately endured the sin of man combined with the wrath of God when He died on the cross- it doesn’t get any lower than that.  That means no matter who you are or how low you are, you are still not so low that the Lord cannot lift you up.  “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” (Deuteronomy 33:27)
