Though he was divine,
he did not cling to equality with God,
but Jesus Christ made himself nothing.
Taking the form of a slave,
he was born in human likeness;
he humbled himself,
and was obedient to death - 
even the death of the cross.
Therefore God has raised him on high,
and given him the name above every name:
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
and every voice proclaim
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.  


(Philippians 2:6-11)
