Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
When it was all over, He was placed into a borrowed tomb. When they could finish His burial some 36 hours later, He had already risen from the grave! He returned to His glory and as a result of His remaining faithful to God’s purpose, His is the name at which every knee should bow.
The reason that Paul has written this is that this is how we should live as Christ’s followers. It is this kind of humility, purpose and selflessness that we should strive for. There is no greater example of love in action than the example of the life of Jesus− He is our role model.
Oh yes, how could I forget to mention that because of what He did in all of this selflessness, you and I have eternal life, and as His co-heirs, we too will arise in glory when the great day comes.
