What It Means to Truly be Broken (pg. 8)

Dr. John David SmithAs we build toward World Missions Day 2022 and its theme, “Broken,” let’s consider what lessons we learn from Jesus and brokenness? Philippians 2:7 (NKJV) explains the connection between the two: “… rather, he made himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.”  The first part of this verse literally means that Jesus emptied Himself. The second part is that He became a servant. In this divine act of the incarnation where God became flesh, these two actions help us understand brokenness and its absolute necessity in fulfilling the mission Christ has given us . . .”
