Wesley's Notes for Philippians 2:8


2:8 And being found in fashion as a man - A common man, without any peculiar excellence or comeliness. He humbled himself - To a still greater depth. Becoming obedient - To God, though equal with him. Even unto death - The greatest instance both of humiliation and obedience. Yea, the death of the cross - Inflicted on few but servants or slaves.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 2:8


Php 2:8 He humbled himself. Note the infinite condescension: (1) The form of God and sharing the divine glory. (2) He divests himself of this. (3) Nor does he then take the divine form, or even the form of an angel, but of lowly, sinful man. (4) But this is not all. He not only takes the form of man, but the mortality of the flesh, and dies. (5) Nay, more, he dies the most shameful and painful of all deaths, even the death of the cross.

    Vv . 14-16. Do all things without murmurings and disputing, that you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God without rebuke in the midst if a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world, holding forth the word of life. Amazing scripture that fits our time on this earth. Let not our love grow cold because iniquity abounds. Jesus is our strength!
