Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those 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 could have come as an arrogant conqueror but He chose to come as a humble slave. He shows us how we should live our lives. In humility with our knee bent in homage to the Lord. He did it, why can we not do it also. Are we better than Him – or do we just think we are?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to stay on my knees in Adoration of your glory. You are my Lord and my God and I want to always strive to live a humble and contrite life. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?
