Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honour and gave him the name above all other names, 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. - Philippians 2:9-11
Then Jesus spoke to His disciples about His impending death and resurrection, it was lost in translation.
They didn't seem to understand. They envisioned Jesus establishing His earthly kingdom where they would rule and reign with Him.
Jesus was about to reveal something to His disciples which they had not understood up to this point, and it was simply this: He would die on a cross.
There would be a crucifixion before there will be the glory. So Jesus posed a very important question to them: "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?"
This question is still being posed to us today, and it is the most important question anyone ever will respond to.
There are really only four options, four responses to that great question Christ posed.
Either Jesus was a legend, a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord.
We know that He was not a legend, because there is more than enough historical evidence to clearly confirm that Jesus Christ lived and died at a marked point in time.
Others will say that He was lying about everything He said, while others would say that He was mad.
But we have to respond to this question Jesus posed. And ultimately everyone everywhere will say that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Christians, skeptics, agnostics, atheists, everyone - regardless of their religion - eventually will say that Jesus Christ is Lord when they stand before God.
Prayer: O Lord, You are my Lord and Saviour. You are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
Scriptural Reading: Philippians 2:1-11
