Exalting Jesus some more

Yahoo! In Philip 2:10, Paul says that every knee should bow to the name of Jesus (along with every tongue confessing that He is Lord).  These come in response to God the Father exalting the name of Jesus.  In chapel on Tuesday, we talked about how we can exalt Jesus & lift Him up, just a little more & just a little more, & even just a little more: lift up

But now I have a follow up question.  What are some different ways that we can bend our knees to the name of Jesus?  Or even better, what does it mean to bend our knees to Jesus?

exalting Jesus

following up on the Philippians blog about Jesus coming into humanity (if you haven’t had a chance to read it, please consider going back to check it out because it provides the context for what happens next in Philip 2:9ff), we read that after Jesus’ humbling & even humiliation, God exalted Him.

Jesus humbled Himself & God exalted Him.  These seem to go together, as do their opposites – exalt yourself & prepare to be humbled by God.  When Philippians talks about God exalting Jesus (hyper-lifting up for my chapel friends), it says that God gives Jesus the name above all names & that at His name every knee will confess & tongue bow (just seeing if you’re paying attention – 😉 ). 

Want to share some ways you’ve found effective in lifting up Jesus’ name in your life?  Could probably help out the rest of us.  Stay tuned tomorrow for some exercise fun relating to working out your salvation.
