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

Every knee should bow and every tongue confess - this is a picture of unity and peace. We know the story ends with everyone singing His glory - there won’t be any bickering about doctrine or politics, there won’t be any brokenness over sin or relational strife. There will only be peace as every people of every nation will be gathered to sing His praises:  Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.

So the question is, if you have already bowed your knee to Him and confessed He is Lord over all, are you living your life in this peace?  

In 1 Corinthians 2:16, Paul says, “But we have the mind of Christ.”  Notice that he doesn't say, try to be like the mind of Christ, or go in search of the mind of Christ. No, he says we already have the mind of Christ if we have accepted Him. His mind of peace is available to us if we are available to Him. The problem is we resist Him. 

There is no guarantee of tomorrow. We only have now to get this right because a day is coming when we won’t be able to change our answer. Today, we can choose to bow to Him willingly and accept His offer of peace. 


Press on ~ you are loved 💗
