“For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).
Jesus is Lord of lords and King of kings. Jesus is God. What has the Lord done? There is only One who is Lord and God. Either you will bow willingly and live under King Jesus, or you will continue in rebellion. The truth for us sinners is somewhere in between. But your bent is one way or the other. Which is it going to be for you? Will you live for the kingdom?
Lord, salvation is being saved from the mess of this world. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth so that I may walk humbly with You, my Lord and my God. Guide me in Your goodness to see that in You alone is all hope and a future. Apart from You there is only eternal death. You are the Lord of lords, be my Lord in order that I would walk in Your example, shine in Your light, and live into the hope You give.
Lord Jesus, You are not a King as the world has kings. You have come to serve us, and ask us to do likewise. Help me live now and always in the hope You give so that I may walk humbly in Your example. Help me to willingly bow to You and submit to Your humble reign. In and through all things, guide me, O Lord, in order that I would walk in Your light and life now and forever. Amen.
