#5 A Treasure Chest of Great Joy

Philippians 2 is a treasure chest of joy.  It is a text that when I read I find I cannot help but break out into great praise and worship to God.  It reveals the great cost of our salvation.  It reveals the incredible humiliation that Christ endured.  It reveals the glory of God as the chief purpose of the cross.  It reveals that their is one path for salvation, and it is only through the God-man, Christ Jesus.  It reveals that upon faith in Jesus by grace we have the mind of Jesus.   It reveals that our worship of the Father  comes through the Son.

Philippians 2:5–11 (ESV)

5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
