There is a HUGE difference between GOD and man, as you will see here.

Compare how man "lifts" JESUS, versus how GOD lifts His SON.

How man "lifted up" JESUS:

John 8:28 

King James Version

28 Then said Jesus unto them, 

When ye have lifted up the Son of man, 

then shall ye know that I am he

and that I do nothing of myself; 

but as my Father hath taught me, 

I speak these things.

You realize, that's the CROSS, right?

The way we "lifted" JESUS, is by crucifying Him.

But look how GOD lifted His SON:

Philippians 2:9-11 

King James Version

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, 

and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, 

of things in heaven, 

and things in earth, 

and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess 

that Jesus Christ is Lord, 

to the glory of God the Father.

A marked difference.

An unscalable difference.

Only through love, through grace, are we saved from our sins, and from ourselves.

And, of course, through the CROSS, where JESUS died for our sins -- as was prophesied.

It was the greatest love from FATHER and SON, for all of us who are mired in sin.

It is also the FORGOTTEN sacrifice.

This post was inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, that we may remember, and know that sacrifice, and difference.

How our hearts need so much repair!
