Day 19: "Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne"
Lyrics: "Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne"
The Baptist Hymnal (1991): #121
Questions for thought and discussion:
1. Christ gave up His rights so that we might have mercy that we in no way deserved. Why then do you think we are so loathe to give mercy to others? He hears the afflicted, the fatherless and the oppressed. How have you done that recently? If you haven't done that, how can you?
2. Christ became poor for us, physically, so that we might be rich spiritually. Yet, we often demand earthly abundance as our due. Is that Biblical? Why not? If we truly seek to emulate Christ, can we have wealth? (Please don't see read a "right" or "wrong" answer from my perspective. I am just hoping to ignite a spirit of searching for God's answers, not man's)
3. If you were Jesus, what would be the most difficult part of leaving your throne? Christ was 100% human, so I am sure there were moments when He remembered, and perhaps even missed or longed for, His heavenly home. Have you ever thought about that?
