Woodcutting by Fritz Eichenberg (1901-1990), “Christ of the Breadline” (1950)

“[Christ] who, being in the very nature of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant...” (Phlp 2:5-6)

In the picture, Christ of the breadlines… the artist tries to picture THIS LOVE of Jesus for broken, smelly, ignorant human beings by picturing Jesus as one of us!  He has wholly and totally associated Himself with those on the margins of society.  He knows every worry, trouble, heart-ache.  He has paid for it by his blood.  He has taken it onto Himself...

And as his followers, we have to follow Him also in THIS...
