The CAUSE for Unity (v1) [answers the question WHY?]
The CALL to Unity (v2) [answers the question WHAT?]
The COMPONENTS of Unity (v3-5) [Answers the question HOW?]

An ABSENCE of SELFISHNESS (v3-4)

Setting aside POSITION
Setting aside POPULARITY
Setting aside PRESTIGE
Setting aside PREFERENCE

An ATTITUDE of the SAVIOR (v5-11)

The PURPOSE of the passage (v5)
The PORTRAIT of the passage (v6-8)

His SELFLESSNESS (v6-7a)
His SERVANTHOOD (v7b)
His SACRIFICE (v8a)
His SUBMISSION (v8b)

The PRIDE involved

He humbled Himself (means to make low and is something done voluntarily)

This involved two types of humiliation:
Physical and Personal
The PUNISHMENT involved

He became obedient to the point of death

Isaiah 52:24 - The prediction of Isaiah

The REACTION of the CROWD

Just as many were astonished at you

The REALITY of the CHRIST

You could not tell WHO it was = So his appearance was marred more than any man

You could not tell WHAT it was = His form was marred more than the sons of men
The PAIN involved

Even death on a cross

Isaiah 53:5 = But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities

Strongest two words to describe a painful death

The PURPOSE involved

Isaiah 53:6 = All of us like sheep have gone astray. Each one of us has turned to his own way. But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him

2 Corinthians 5:21 – God made Him who knew no sin to become sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of Christ in Him
