He Made Himself Nothing

Philippians 2:5-11  (ID: 1765)

During the Christmas season, it can be easy to think of Christ’s birth merely as an inspiring story—but it is far more meaningful than that. In this meditation on Philippians 2, Alistair Begg highlights the steps Christ took downward from heaven, starting with His birth as a human baby and leading to His willing, obedient death on the cross. Ultimately, Christmas finds its true meaning through Christ's obedience to God, shown in His death, resurrection, ascension, and promised return.


5Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,1
