The Son of God Became a Man

In Philippians 2:6-7 (EtRV) we read:

Christ himself was like God in everything. Christ was equal with God. But Christ did not think that being equal with God. But Christ did not think that being equal with God was something that he must keep.

He gave up his place with God, and agreed to be like a servant. He was born to be a man and become like a servant. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has always been. He was alive even at the beginning of the world and helped God the father create it. In John 1:1-3 (ETRV) he is called "the Word." That scripture says:

Before the world began, the word was there. The Word was there with God. The word was God. He was there with God from the beginning. All things were made through him (the Word). Nothing was made without him.

And in Verse 14 we read:

The word became a man and lived among us. Before he became man, Jesus was God together with the Father. He was in Heaven with the father. But for our sakes he left heaven and became a man. He emptied himself and was born as a little baby. He gave up the joy of being God in heaven to come and die on the cross for us. In Luke 19:10 (EtRV) Jesus is called "the Son of Man.: there we read:

The Son of Man to find lost people and save them.

And in mark 10:45 (EtRV) we find a similar scripture: in the same way, the Son of Man did not come for other people to serve him. But the Son of Man came to serve other People. The Son of Man came to give his life to save many people.

That is why Philippians 2:8-11 (EtRV) says:

When he was living as a man, he humbled himself by being fully obedient to God. He obeyed even when that caused him to die. And he died on the cross. Christ obeyed God, so made the name of Christ greater then every other name. God wants every person to bow for the name of Jesus. Every person in heaven, on earth, and under the earth will bow.

Every person will confess (Say) "Jesus Christ is Lord (Master)." When they say this, it will bring glory to God the father.

Because Jesus gave up so much for us, God wants us to give up our lives for him. He wants us to follow after Jesus and say that Jesus is our Lord. When Jesus comes again, all the dead people will come back to life. Then everyone will bow down before Jesus, weather they want to or not. But then it will not help you to say that he is lord in this life. Not Only must you say it, you must obey him and show others that he really is lord. He deserves it; he gave up so much for you.
