Brothers and sisters: 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 death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that 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.

What great love, to give Himself for us. It takes great humility to love so much that you are willing to give up your life for someone else. Can you accept that love? Do you bend your knee to Him who loved you so much? Today we honor the cross of Christ, His great love for us and proclaim to the world “that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Prayer: “We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You. because by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.” Thank you for your gift of love, Amen

Do not forget the works of the Lord!
