One day no matter what, Jesus will be Lord of all, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord. I was thinking about this today and how urgent it is that we tell people now, not wait until that day in a kind of smug haze because we’re alright. How sad that people we know and love might never know God in this lifetime and that by the time they do bow the knee it may be too late for them. Let’s get busy witnessing in every way we can, the time to strike is now.
- Zechariah 14:9 – And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and His name the only one
- Romans 14:11 – For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall give praise to God.”
- Philippians 2:11 – and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
YOU’RE GONNA BOW
OK so you might not believe this but one day you’re gonna bow your knee to Jesus and see this is how it goes, you can choose to fall to your knees now and reap the benefits of his friendship, a special relationship that’s yours for life, a holy alliance with earthly benefits and the emphasis is on those benefits, like who else protects you 24/7, loves you no matter what you do, provides for your every need, who else would die for you, like literally die to save you, literally lay down their life so that you could live, who else gives you love that never changes, never waivers, no argument, no hostility, who loves your fragility, your brokenness and who takes all that and gives you back beauty, beauty for your ashes, who else smashes every shackle, tackles your enemies head on because they want to, who else would do that for you? You’re gonna bow your knee to Jesus one day, why not today, why not say to him, I’m here, ready to give it a try, just see what changes he’ll make in your life, why not ask him today to show you his love, like really ask him with a desire to find out the answer, I can only lead you to the water, you need to drink and if you think water is life giving you will be astounded when you accept the life giving water of my God who wants you to accept that he is real before it becomes a big deal, before it’s too late for you to say, “Jesus you are Lord” and “I’m sorry I never saw that before”, don’t end up sorry you didn’t get down on your knees and accept that only God could set you free and see it’s not just about freedom today sure that’s part of it but don’t forget that eternity’s an awful long time to be in the dark.
