Philippians 2:11
Jesus Christ Is Lord

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

I have watched as some who had never heard His name
Listen to the Gospel preaching.
They find it hard to grasp that Jesus is the same
As God; it was never in their teaching.
Now they are asked to consider that God became man
To save our souls from hell.
How is this possible? Who in this world can
Be God and man as well?

What makes this truth real, though not truly understood,
Is the life of those who know the Lord.
People watch believers who live as they should,
Guided by the Spirit and the Word.
They are convinced of God and the need in their life
This is what they learn they are missing.
And watching humble saints shining as lights –
They step in faith to accept God’s blessing.

Then it becomes real to them, as it is to me;
The One who paid our sin-price we love.
Each new believer then learns and begins to see
More of the blessings we have.
Out of joyful appreciation for God’s salvation,
The new servant is willing to do,
All our Savior desires and his occupation
Is serving Jesus as Lord all life through.

“I know Gracious God, that very few understand much more than freedom from sin’s consequences when they are first saved. The spiritual awakening leads them to understand who they are in Christ and who He is to them. Acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord continues through life. But what a fearsome day it will be when all unbelievers acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. I am thankful for every one who does confess that now, and believes in their heart. Accept my grateful thanks in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
