Sermon Illustrations

Jesus willingly put aside His divine glory and became the lowest of humans, a poor carpenter from a backwater town in Galilee. He suffered and because he obediently suffered the death of a slave, he was crowned with glory and honor. The idea was to bring many of God’s children to the same glory, and so he was the pioneer of salvation, of union with God. A pioneer hacks through the wilderness in order to make a safe path for those who follow. He does the heavy lifting, but that doesn’t mean we get a free ride. We, too, are made perfect–complete–through suffering.
