Christmas Bible Reading Plan 2015 – Day 28

Day 28 – Philippians 2:9-11
by Jason

Today we see God’s vision for our lives, that Jesus is number one for us, and that we acknowledge Jesus as Lord, so we live in love and harmony with each other. Wherever we are. We can see this is God’s visions where it says that God exalted him (or lifted Him) to the highest place (…) ‘SO THAT’ every knee shall bow and we should all worship Jesus.

I think the closest example I have seen this year is what I have experienced this Christmas. I spent a lot of time this Christmas with friends who have children, from 3 months old to 5 years old, and one thing I loved seeing was our friends talking about how proud they are of their kids and lifting them up for other people to admire. Your parents most likely do that now about you because they love you and are so proud of what you do, especially for family back in you home towns.

God does this to Jesus, lifts Him up, exalts Him, so that we can show our love to Him. What Jesus went through for us was more than anyone could do for anyone. We aren’t worshipped by our parents friends, but we do get some attention. In life, God wants us to give Jesus our complete attention, because what He did was FOR all of us.

Think of one thing today to thank Jesus for. It might be something personal from this Christmas, or something more general like the cross. Either way, thank Him and mean it.
