For this reason God highly exalted Him and gave Him the name that 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 every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
One day soon. And what a glorious day that will be. I am brought to tears at the thought of King Jesus being lifted high in all of his glory and splendor by every single person. He is so worthy! Until then, we pray his kingdom come and will be done here on earth as it is perfectly established in heaven. We preach the gospel to all nations. Every people group. Every language. Help us Lord to remember at all times the purpose for which we have been saved and raised to new life - to share the Good News. The good news of salvation and eternal life. The news that we have been forgiven, we have a Father and a home in heaven. The good news that we are invited into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. The good news that we are forever loved and wanted.
Jesus, thank you for you obedience - total surrender to God the Father. You willingly laid down your life so that I could be raised to new life. Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice. There is no greater gift than life, eternal life. There is no other greater name. What a beautiful name. The name of Jesus Christ.
