Christ's Exaltation

Philippians 2.9-11
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus’ humiliation leads to his exaltation. Jesus showed God’s love for humanity in his work on the cross. Whether or not people recognize Jesus as Lord, one day everyone will know Jesus is Lord. Paul quotes Isaiah 45.23.

As part of the Godhead Jesus always glorifies the Father. We should follow Jesus’ example of humility and loving service to God. Philippians 2.5-11 is known as the hymn of Christ because it shows Christ’s example of service through his preexistence, incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of God.

Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior? Do you share the hope you have in Christ? Do you show your love for God in humble service?
