The God of Self-Sacrificing Love
Jesus gave up a lot so that we could be saved. Ok--that's a huge understatement! Jesus gave up everything we could possibly imagine--and perhaps more--so that we could receive eternal life. In Philippians 2:5-11, Paul helps us understand everything Jesus did to humble himself and give up his rights so that we could be saved. It's a powerful example of the way that Christians are called to give up our rights and what's best for us so that others can be blessed instead.
