novatian

Here’s the 2nd reflection on Philippians 2: 5-11 from the Ancient Christian Devotional.

The sovereignty of the divine Word temporarily submitted to assume a man and for a season humbled himself and abased himself, not exercising his nature through his powers, while he bore the man that he had assumed.  He emptied himself when he bowed to injuries and slanders, when he heard unspeakable insults and suffered indignities.

-Novatian, On the Trinity.
