Whose Service Have You Chosen?
In order to save [humanity], Jesus laid aside His honor as commander in heaven, left the world of glory, and came to earth to live as a man among men. He might have appeared with all the display of royalty, attended by ten thousand times ten thousand of His ministering angels. But He humbled himself, not only to take our nature, but to become a man of sorrows, to take upon Him the form of a servant. He came to do good, to help the needy and the distressed; to heal the sick; to speak peace to the suffering; to deliver those whom Satan was afflicting; to bring redemption to all who would receive this heaven-sent blessing.
