Day 4 – Journey to the Cross – Pastor Kevin Lautar

Hello First Family!

What a great day in church yesterday! It is always the highlight of my week when we meet together and worship our Lord.

Today’s Code word is Condescension, which means a voluntary assumption of equality with a person regarded as inferior. We see condescension acted out when a parent gets on the floor to play with the child. They are getting  on the same level of a child to communicate love and presence with the child. We see condescension acted out when a doctor exhibits a caring bedside manner coming alongside the sick or diseased. But the most amazing and impressive act of condescension was when Jesus left the glory of heaven and took the form of a man. Philippians 2:8 states, “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”

I am convinced that we are no more like Christ than when we condescend into the world and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a lost and perishing world. Let the grace and mercy of God dominate your thoughts today while you focus on His amazing love acted out in His condescension for all humanity. Today’s verse is from John 14:18, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” Praise be to God!
