Jesus was God in any way, shape, or form.
But Jesus didn’t insist that the world should worship him.
Instead, he humbled himself.
He chose to serve.
In order to serve, he became a human.
When he became a human, he continually humbled himself.
Then he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal's death on a cross.
Then God jumped at this humbleness.
Then God highly exalted Jesus.
God made Jesus the most important person in the universe.
Then God ordered that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Now let us worship this Jesus who is God.
