himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and
was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of
the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a
name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under
the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11)

shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall
they hear without a preacher? (Romans 10:14)


For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God,
it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
 (1 Corinthians 1:21)
