“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 2:10-11

TODAY’S WORD…

At the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

– Philippians 2:10-11

 

REFLECTION…

The name “Jesus” or “Jesus Christ” is often heard – but, unfortunately, not in a reverent context. His holy Name has become just an exclamation to some, and a swear word to others.

It is also sad that there are many out there who do not know Him.

It is even more sad, that there are many out there who know of Him but have shrugged their shoulders at the Cross and now utter Jesus’s Holy Name only as a careless curse, or to blaspheme.

“At the name of Jesus every knee should bend…and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.” It is left to us, who do know Jesus, to be His witnesses and to take Him to others – so that for them too He will become Lord.

But we need to first ask ourselves, “in my own life, is Jesus Christ truly my Lord?”

 

PRAYER…

Lord Jesus, You are my Lord and my God.

But forgive me, Lord,

for the number of times

I held back from admitting that I knew You.

 

Forgive me for the number of times

I acted like I didn’t know You.

 

Forgive me for the number of times

I pushed You aside to make way for my selfishness.

 

Lord, I believe in You;

I acknowledge Your holy Name with deepest reverence;

I bow before You and confess that You are my God.

 

Lord, mould me, change me,

and use me to proclaim Your Name to others.

 

Lord, hear my prayer
