Philippians 2:6-8 (Obedience to God s Holy Spirit) Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Hebrews 2:6-8 (Sub Section Heading in NIV: Jesus Made Like His Brothers ) What is man that you are mindful of him, the Son of Man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor and put everything under his feet.
