Kevin Myers said today that “to bow is to physically demonstrate what is true in your heart”. It is a choice whom we bow to.
In Philippians Chapter 2:
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
I have always read that passage of Scripture thinking that – at the day of Judgement – all people will be “forced” to bow. I had imagined it as a show of force…an unveiling of truth…a day of reckoning.
But recently I realized that was a silly interpretation. We will all choose to bow. When we come face-to-face with the incredible love of Jesus, everyone will bow because they will desire to!
Thanks for listening.
