Text: Philippians 2; 1 Chronicles 9-10
On of the great high statements about who Jesus is, what He has done and of His kingship over all forevermore is found in today’s reading.
“…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 2:6-11)
As I write this, my son’s life is slipping away following a massive stroke. I would despair but for Jesus, who came down from heaven, became as one of us, conquered death for us and now is exalted above all. Because of Jesus there is life beyond this life. And so on a very dark day I rest in Him. I look forward to that great day when every knee shall bow. I pray that you might know Him.
in Him, Mike
