We are Christ Exalting because Jesus Christ is everything. There is no person or thing more wonderful than Jesus. He existed before all things and is above all things. By Him and for Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him, and in Him all things hold together. He is the eternal Son of God.
And yet Jesus Christ laid aside his glory to come into this world as a human being to save us from our sin. He came as our substitute, living a perfect life for us, then willingly giving His life for us on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin. He has reconciled us to God by shedding His blood on the cross so that we now stand forgiven, holy and blameless before God.
We belong to Jesus. We (the Church) are His body, and He is the head of the body. We (the Church) are His bride, and He is the bridegroom. He is everything, and everything to us. His name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
