Philippians 2:9-11 (NKJV)
9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
No matter what it may seem like at times, Jesus Christ is Lord. Nothing happens in our life without His knowledge.
God has given man-king the authority to choose things on the day Adam fell because of his sin. Till then it was God who decided things for Adam. He has given us the freedom to choose things for ourselves so that we may see the folly of going our own way in rebellion to God.
But this won't last forever. God has a plan with a limited amount of time allotted for this part of history.
All that is bad in the world today is the result of choices people made. God is not to blame. His only blame is that He allowed us the freedom to choose.
One day Jesus will exercise His authority and put a stop to all evil. Not only that, but He will eliminate the curse and all its effects. He will make all things new, whole, and sound again.
One day everyone will see and acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ. You have that privilege today to acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus over your life and accept him as you one and only savior.
John 1:3-5 (KJV) says
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Let us thank God that we have the life of Jesus in us, and we will never again remain in darkness. We do not have to make choices for ourselves any more, but the Holy Spirit will do it and we just have to follow it.
1 John 5:10-13 (KJV)
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
I am Glad that Jesus Christ is My Lord. And I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME.
Are We Ready to Go and See Him?
What is the benefit of going and seeing Him ? Our Lord promised that "We will see greater things; We will see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."
How to Open Your Heart to Christ
The Christian life is one of humility. Had there been no pride, there would have been no sin. So as you live the Christian life, put God first, others second, and yourself last. When you do that, you’ll understand the true essence of the Christian life: humility!
