Day 240 - Phil. 2, Verses 1-11

V. 1-4 In order for them to have love one for another, they would have to see each other as enjoying Christ. Then each would think better of other believers than they did of themselves.
V. 5-11 The Son of God made two steps downward and two upward in these verses.
V. 5-7 He emptied Himself, becoming a Man and a Servant.
V. 8 Secondly, as a Man He humbled Himself and became obedient unto the awful death of the cross.
V. 9-10 Now two steps upward. He, as the Man Jesus, is highly exalted and given a name which is above every name. Every knee will bow to His name as Lord.
V. 11 And secondly, every tongue is going to confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
