"But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone."
I fear too often we take for granted the grace of God. The very thought that Christ could love us so much that He would willingly lay down His Heavenly crown and take up the humiliating cross should move us to sorrowful repentance and glorious praise. Repent to the Lord, for He who knew no sin became sin for us that we might become His righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21). Praise the Lord, for the obedience that caused His suffering raised Him to glory.
