Phil. 2:5-11 Humbled and Exalted.

We are called to follow Christ in being humble bondservants with him. It is an attitude of mind, a choice of how to live one’s faith in a fallen world. The second person of the trinity humbled himself not only in his death, but in becoming also a man – by creation, one who serves under the LORD as his steward. Yet, because he did shed his blood for his elect ones, the Father exalted him to again sit at his right hand in his current messianic reign, “to the glory of God the Father.” (v. 11) In like fashion he exalts the humble (Pr. 29:23).
