|Philippians 2:6-11 |
6 Who, though He was one with God and in the form of God, did not think this equality with God was something to be retained [held fast];
7 But made himself nothing, and took upon himself the nature of a slave, and became like men, born a human being.
8 And after appearing in the likeness of man, he humbled himself further, and carried his obedience to death, even the death of the cross!
9 Therefore God has highly exalted him, and given him a name that is above every name;
10 So that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven and things in earth and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. [To "confess" that Jesus Christ is Lord, means that everyone makes him Lord of their life — their controlling spirit within them — in love, peace, and joy. From the Word of the Lord within: "Every tongue will witness Jesus Christ as Lord. He will rule every man."]
