It’s All About Him
It’s All About Him
I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Galatians 2:20 (ESV)
But in Philippians 2, just before the above verses, we read:
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interest of others. 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 likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Phil 2:3-5)
So, the One – the One that in the Beginning and the End it IS all about – did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:28)
On the cross, at the end of Jesus’ life, He did make it about us. He came to rescue and to redeem us. During this Holy Week, we remember how Jesus laid aside His eternal glory and came and sacrificed His life to bring us to God. During this Holy Week, and for the rest of our lives, as we remember His sacrifice, may each of us make it all about Him.
In the end, it’s all about God!
