Every Knee Will Bow

every kneeYou want to know what humility is all about? Read this: “So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:1-11). After all is said and done, if we refuse to humble ourselves to God now, we will bow by force, and we will acknowledge that His Son is Lord to the glory of God the Father. One way or the other, we will bow. I am learning to bow now, so when the time comes, I will know what to do. I will do so willingly, because He is already Lord in my life. God be praised. How are you going to bow? Humbly or by forced. May God help you to accept His Son as Lord, so when He comes back, you will not be disappointed, but you will join Him in His kingdom as co-heirs, willing to bow and glorify Him as Lord, to the glory of God our Father. God bless you.
