Choosing Joy: Philippians 2:5-11

Philippians 2:5-11

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, 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.

Friends, one day EVERY knee will bow in honor to the name above all names… Jesus. Not only will everyone bow, but everyone will confess that Jesus is Lord! What a glorious day that will be! In the meantime, we have a lot of work to do! We can never stop reaching out to a hurting world that is desperate to know the One who bears this most powerful name… Jesus! Now is not the time to shrink back or hold back. It’s the time to reach out, roll up our sleeves, and get to work. Now is the time to reach out to a world that needs to feel the love of Christ. Now is the time to help people experience forgiveness and receive unconditional love! That glorious day when every knee will bow and every tongue confess is coming, but until that day let’s get busy!
