As I was preparing for church this morning I was reminded of declaration of praise in Philippians 2:6-11. This is what it says about Lord Jesus:
Though he was God,
he did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;
he took the humble position of a slave
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,
he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
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.(NLT)
So who gets the glory? Who deserves the glory? Who is it that we exalt? Me? No. Him!
