Michael takes us to another profound scripture and practical remedy and makes it so easy for those who will read today’s writing in MWfHS and receive the Word. Well, amen.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. --Philippians 2:5-8
Man needed redemption not only from sin but also from himself. In order to accomplish that, God had to become a man, be victorious over all that vexes mankind, return to heaven, and from there dispense His victorious life to all who would ask. We have to wonder what it was like for Him who created the entire universe to wake up in the morning and discover Himself in the body of a baby. Imagine waking up and finding yourself in a coffin six feet under the ground. Would you panic, beat the sides of the coffin, yell, scream, and plead for deliverance? The body in which He found Himself was indeed a coffin, for in it He would die, but when God yielded Himself to living as a man, He humbled Himself.

Isn’t it interesting that when the Man with an immeasurable IQ tells us something so very simple and uncomplicated that will dramatically “improve” life for us here on earth, we read it as if it were the day’s severe weather prognostication and go about our business unmoved…umbrella left at home.
1. have this attitude…
2. empty ourself (humility)…I have nothing.
3. ask for His victorious life to be dispensed to us today
4. enjoy His life abundantly all day long
Doesn’t seem too difficult, does it? Can we believe it will happen?
