The Humility of Love

(Jesus) made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:7-8 NKJV

We see the humility of the love of Jesus in His birth, His life, His death, His resurrection and His ascension.
