A day is coming when all people will bow before Christ Jesus. At that point, His reign, which is a reality now, will be made completely visible. On that day, some will rejoice to see the return of the King, and no one will need to tell them to bow. Others will remain firm in their hatred of the universe’s rightful Ruler. Nevertheless, they will be forced to kneel. Jesus is as surely the King now as He will be on that final day, so let us serve Him with gladness today.
The humble and meek Jesus whom most people will embrace is also the holy and wrathful Jesus whom most people would rather forget. When we present the Gospel to non-believers, let us never forget to tell them that if they will not submit to Christ as Lord and Savior today, they will feel His wrath after they die. Look for an opportunity to present Jesus Christ as Judge and Savior to someone who is lost in sin.
