9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. - Philippians 2:9-11
Everybody serves somebody. Some serve money, some serve their children, their spouses, or some other relationship, some serve their job, some serve their appearance or their health, some serve their things. Make no mistake about it - everybody chooses somebody to serve. What drives your behavior? Who are you trying to please?
Someday Jesus will come back and He will set the record straight. He will bring this world to an end. Every person will speak words of truth, acknowledging that He is Lord, and every person will bow in submission to Him as King of Kings. We don’t know when it will happen, but we know with certainty that it will happen. You will have to answer for the choices that you’ve made.
There are plenty of bad choices and poor decisions made in our lifetime, most of which don’t hold significant consequences. One choice holds eternal consequences. Living in this world is about getting one choice right - Jesus Christ is the ultimate authority. He is our Ruler and our Master. He is the only One we should serve. He is the one who should guide our decisions and motivate our behavior. No matter what we may accomplish in this world, if we don’t get this one right, our lives are worth nothing. Choose to serve Him.
Press on ~ you are loved 💗
This post reminded me of the song, "Gotta Serve Somebody" by Bob Dylan.ReplyDelete
