Sunday Sermon Series – 12/04/2022

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

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

PHILIPPIANS 2

Chapter CONTEXT from Matthew Henry Complete Commentary: The apostle proceeds to further exhortations to several duties, to be like-minded, and lowly-minded, which he presses from the example of Christ (v. 1-11), to be diligent and serious in the Christian course (v. 12, 13), and to adorn their Christian profession by several suitable graces (v. 14-18). He then concludes with particular notice and commendation of two good ministers, Timothy and Epaphroditus, whom he designed to send to them (v. 19-30).

In yesterday’s devotion, we spoke of the deity of the Holy Spirit and here today we show that of Jesus Himself. Of course, there are numerous other verses of Holy Scripture one could reference we just happen to like these 😀. Here is an excellent Commentary from Matthew Poole on Philippians 2:6 that delves into the diety of Christ:


Christ’s deity makes Him worthy of being exalted above every other name. So much so that the day is coming when every knee shall bow and tongue confess Him as Lord of all.
