Descending into Greatness 4.21.19

The Scripture this week is Philippians 2:6-11.

“Some may not be ready to bow your knee to Jesus because you have doubts and questions … you’re not convinced … but curious

The invitation for you is to continue on your course of curiosity – be honest with your doubts and lean into your questions – their your guides.

Some reject … may even ridicule Jesus’ resurrection and the claim that He is the Lord as nothing more than fantasy or magical thinking.

The invitation for you is to revisit the reasons you resist acknowledging Jesus as your savior and Lord … reconsider who Jesus is.

Others of us, maybe the largest number in this room, affirm the historical fact of Jesus’ resurrection.

We acknowledge Jesus as our savior.

But the resurrection and the name given to Jesus calls us to something far more than belief in the facts.

The invitation for us is to bend our knee in complete surrender to Jesus Christ as our Lord – he deserves obedience with every aspect of our lives as we follow Him.

At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord

In the end…we will all acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord.

So wherever we find ourselves today…Why not now?”
