Jesus’ Humility and Exaltation

The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is fully God, dwelling for all eternity in Heaven, equal with God the Father in position, power and holiness. Yet because of love for mankind, He willingly humbled Himself and came to earth as a man, lived among sinful men, and at last died a shameful death to pay for our sins. He went from the very highest to the very lowest. But it didn’t end there. The Bible also tells us that Jesus lives again and has been exalted by His Father to the highest position of all, above all men, prophets, angels, and “gods.” “Jesus” is the name that is above all names, and one day every single person will bow before Him, confessing that He alone is Lord!

Philippians 2:5-11 – “Christ Jesus… though he was in the form of God…made himself nothing…And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name…so that…every knee should bow…and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord…”
