we must have the same attiude that jesus had. though he was god, he did not think of equality with god as something to cling to. instead, he gave up his divine privileges, taking the humble position of a slave and was born a human. when he appeared in human from, he humbled himself in obedience to god and died a criminals death on a cross. therefore god elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all names, that at the name of jesus every knee will bow, in heaven & on earth, & under the earth, & every tongue confess that jesus is lord, to the glory of god the father.
