I remember counseling a dear woman in our church that could not get her mind around the fact that Jesus was 100% man and 100% God. The math did not work for her as she wanted 50% + 50% to make 100%. Not 100% + 100%. It is so amazing to me that Jesus pored out His claim to the power and access of divinity while all the while able to access it. He laid it aside. That is my best attempt to explain Phil 2:6-8:

“who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”

Here Jesus was humbling Himself by setting aside His divinity while all along being by nature divine so that He could, in human form, die on our behalf. That settles for me how God could die and how man could endure the weight of all men’s sin. What love is this!! What incredible depths the Lord descended to on our behalf. If that doesn’t break the Christian, nothing will.

Thank you for the lesson Pastor Jack!
