This is Jesus.

In His teaching, He destroys all human hierarchies, all caste systems, all power trips.  He turns over the tables of hypocrisy and heals the helpless.  He comes to embrace each of us with a one-on-one love.  The divine hug of grace is found in the manger that first Christmas night; the greatest kiss of mercy is found at the cross.  He lowers Himself from Heaven to fallen earth to lonely grave.  He buys us for the most terrible price, He saves us with the most painful rescue, He frees us with a love so epic that not even the greatest fiction writing can touch it.

This is Jesus.

He was humble and walked the path of obedience all the way to death—
his death on the cross.

(Philippians 2:8, GNT)
