Serious Reflection

This week our Women's Bible study had our annual Christmas lunch at the Olive Garden.  Part of or conversation was about prayer.  We were discussing prayer and how humbling it is to go to prayer on one's knees.  I have been reflecting this morning on Philippians 2:5-11: "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." This verse brought me back to our conversation on kneeling, and it it a sobering truth that some day all will bow their knee.  I think I need more time to truly reflect on the reality of this verse and the seriousness of it!
