Philippians 2:9

Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,(Philippians 2:9, ESV)
"Therefore..." What is it "there for?"

According to the previous verse, Jesus has done the ultimate in an act of humble obedience. Now, Paul tells us that his obedience is has resulted in God's recognition of him. He has been highly exalted. On him a name has been bestowed that is above every name. Not meaning that he has a different name, but simply referring to the fact that his name is now a name that is above every other.
