We glorify Christ’s ascent to heaven but it was His descent that was the crowning achievement of His life.
The Bible makes it very clear that Jesus came down into this world and He came down from the very top.
The One worthy of all worship and the Source of all power was born as a helpless baby in a dirty animal stable. Once His life on earth began, Jesus never stopped descending.
Omnipotent, He cried;
The owner of all things, He had no home.
The King of Kings, He became a bondservant;
The source of truth, He was found guilty of blasphemy;
The Creator, He was spit on by the creatures;
The Giver of life, He was crucified naked on a cross–bleeding, gasping for air.
From the pinnacle of praise in the universe to the ultimate debasement and torture of death on a cross. It was Christ life and His death as a man that violated every tenet of heaven and earth.
The Sustainer of all things came to pour Himself out upon the cross.
The one who possessed everything became nothing.
From the world’s perspective He was a fool and the cross became a symbol of that foolishness. But it was through this downward plunge that Jesus truly received a name that is higher than every name.
God descended into His own greatness.
Thank You Lord!
