Philippians 2:3-11

This week is finals week! Consequently, I do not have the time or energy to post anything too substantive. However, for one of my classes we have to memorize the following passage. It is a great passage and I can kill two birds with one stone by posting it here. I could post a lot about the Kenosis Theory or a bunch of other things. However, again, time and energy do not permit me to do so. Plus, I think there is a sense in which we should just look at this scripture and sit back and see the beauty of our Lord. Certainly, there is a time and a place for refuting nonsense like that heresy, but we musn't be inclinded to do this always.

3Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;

4do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

5Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,

6who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

7but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

8Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

9For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,

10so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
