This week’s reading from St Paul’s letter to the Philippians reminds us of what true love is all about. This week we remember Jesus ultimate sacrifice of love as in obedience to his heavenly father he puts aside his heavenly Glory and takes the sinfulness of all humanity across all of time upon his shoulders and dies. In this one selfless act of love, sin and death are defeated. and the world is changed forever.
For all those who will dare to believe and put their trust in him, new life has been won and the only response can be praise and wonder, joy and worship.
St Paul’s charge to the early church and to us is to; “Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus” Phillippians 2:5 , In perfect love and obedience we are called to follow Jesus example of faithfulness, obedience and love, for God has exalted Him to the very highest place and given him the name that is above every name.
“So that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. “ Philippians 2:11
