Favourite Verses:Philippians 2:6-8
"who being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God. But made Himself of no reputation taking the form of a bond servant, and coming in the likeness of men, and being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross."
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men.
