Last Sunday morning we looked at Philippians 2:5-11 “Adopt the Attitude of Christ”. We sang ; My Jesus (Shout to the Lord); King of Kings/Majesty; Ps119:1-8; Philippians 2:5-11 and When I Survey the Wonderous Cross
Melito of Sardis (2nd Century) – “ He that hung up the earth in space was himself hanged up; he that fixed the heavens was fixed with nails; he that bore up the earth was borne up on a tree; the Lord of all was subjected to ignominy in a naked body – God put to death.
