Every Knee will Bow to Christ
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.Philippians 2:9-11
Every knee will bow to Christ in recognition that he is Lord, and everyone will know God’s truth. It is written: As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God (Romans 14:11). The day will come when everyone will know the truth and unfortunately it will be too late for many.
Each lost soul deserves to know the truth before it is too late and Satan has stolen another soul from God. Christians can offer prayers for lost souls and for those who persecute and kill Christians. In addition, Christians can reflect God’s love and truth to everyone because that is how we fight Satan. You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:43-45). We are Christians and our hearts are filled with God’s love, meaning there is no room for hate. Our hate must be directed toward Satan and his sinful ways of stealing souls from God. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:24). Jesus offered this prayer for those who ridiculed him and crucified him. All Christians must have the same compassionate heart, because those who persecute and kill Christians don’t know what they are doing.
A Christian can show love to lost souls by praying that the Lord reaches them and changes their hearts. The more we pray the more active the Lord will be in touching their hearts through dreams, visions, and his actions. Militant terrorists have had dreams about Christ and have turned to be powerful witnesses for Christ, just as the Apostle Paul, who persecuted Christians, was changed on the road to Damascus. As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” (Acts 9:1-2). The remaining verses reveal the divine way Jesus changed Paul’s heart, and he became one of the strongest and most powerful Christians. Through prayer and reflecting God’s love Christians can help save lost souls.
Today pray and reflect God’s love to lost souls. Reflect your hope and joy in the Lord and seek to feed it to the hearts of others. Salvation through Christ brings hope and joy and a heart to tell others the Good News of Christ.
Let’s Pray: Lord, help me to bring the truth to others before it is too late, because tomorrow is not promised. Give me the courage and the words to touch their hearts with your love. Guide me in the Spirit and give me ears to hear. In Jesus name, Amen
