Philippians 2:8-11

Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:8‭-‬11 NASB

Yesterday’s devotion spoke of the humbleness of Jesus. His grace bestowed upon us. He became poor so we could become rich.

Jesus, my Savior, You are worthy to be praised, for by Your humbleness You brought salvation. What we do see is You, Jesus, who for a little while was given a position “a little lower than the angels, and because, You suffered death for me and others, You are now “crowned with glory and honor”. Yes, by the grace of God You tasted death for everyone. By this I am humbled, Lord. Out of obedience to the Father You were delivered over to the hands of godless men and put to death, nailed to a cross. For through one man’s disobedience all were made sinners, even so through Your obedience, Jesus, many can be made righteous. For this I am truly grateful. And by Your seeking the will of the Father and not Your own You have shown me what I must do, seek Your kingdom first.
I will fix my eyes on You, Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before You endured the cross, despising the shame, and now sit down at the right hand of the throne of God far above all rule and authority and power and dominion. You are far above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come! In Your glorious, everlasting name I pray, amen.
Hebrews 2:9/Acts 2:23/Romans 5:19/Matthew 26:39/Hebrews 12:2/Ephesians 1:21 NASB

🌹For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
Romans 14:9 NASB

Is Jesus your Lord? Your Savior? If not, He can be. The Bible says,
that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
Romans 10:9 NASB

Holy, Holy, Holy

The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble; He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake! The Lord is great in Zion, And He is exalted above all the peoples. Let them praise Your great and awesome name; Holy is He. Exalt the Lord our God And worship at His footstool; Holy is He. Exalt the Lord our God And worship at His holy hill, For holy is the Lord our God. Psalms 99:1‭-‬3‭, ‬5‭, ‬9 NASB

God reigns. He is on His throne. He is exalted above all the peoples whether we believe or acknowledge it as so.

Reality check. God is holy, whether we believe it or not.

What should be our response to these facts?

Let us praise His great and awesome name.
Exalt the Lord our God and worship Him.

FOR HE IS HOLY!!

🌹How will you respond to God’s holiness today?

Continually Seeking Him,
