John 1:1–5; 14; Matthew 1:22-23
Jesus so valued each of us that He left His throne from which He heard the continual cry of “Holy, holy, holy” to take on a man’s frame and hear instead, “Crucify Him!” (Revelation 4:8; Matthew 27:22-23).
Jesus was willing to humble Himself and leave heaven’s highest position to assume earth’s lowliest position for no reason other than our salvation. Because of His unfathomable love for us, the King became a Servant.
