Humiliation, Sacrifice, Resurrection

Though Jesus was in the form of God, he did not regard equality with God something to be possessed by force. On the contrary, he emptied himself, in that he took the form of a slave by becoming like human beings are.
And when he appeared as a human being, he humbled himself still more by becoming obedient even to death - death on a stake as a criminal!
Therefore God raised him to the highest place and gave him the name above every name; that in honor of the name given Jesus, every knee will bow - in heaven, on earth and under the earth -
and every tongue will acknowledge that Jesus the Messiah is the Lord, Jehovah - to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus said, "I AM the Resurrection and the Life! Whoever puts his trust in me will live, even if he dies; and everyone living and trusting in me will never die.
