Now Highly Exalted
By Andrew Murray
It was because Christ humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, yea, the death of the Cross, that God so highly exalted Him. And Paul, in this connection, exhorts us: "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus."
We see above everything else that the obedience of Christ, which was so pleasing to God, must become really the characteristic of our disposition and of our entire walk. Just as a servant knows that he must first obey his master in all things, so the surrender of an implicit and unquestioning obedience must become the essential characteristic of our lives.
Christ holds Himself responsible to work this out in me every moment if I only trust Him for it. "Unto Him that is able to keep you from falling…be glory and majesty" (Jude 24-25).
