Our pastor had spoken about Jesus thinking it not robbery to be equal with (or) God, but became one of us.
Ph 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
Jesus didn't say "Mine, mine, mine..." when it came to the glory He left behind.
How wonderful that Jesus looked at us and said "Mine, mine, mine..."
"who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God...." Hebrews 12:2
His Church, His Bride is the joy that was set before Him.
