The word "therefore" shows the inevitable result of Christ's obedience and humility was His exaltation. It was inevitable because that is what God always said would happen through His prophets. His being raised shows that God the Father accepted the payment for sin on the cross. It was also inevitable because of who He is - He never ceased to be God - and because the Father loves the Son. Have we seen the worth of Jesus and trusted Him?
