Blogging From the Ozarks
The picture is from the first night at Junior Camp (Beth Eden) in which two children gave their lives to Christ. It was a fantastic chapel service which included ventriloquism, prestidigitation, preaching, music and the Spirit moving. Here, Marin, Abby and G-ma are settling in for a fun week of camp. May many souls be saved and Christian kids surrender their lives to Christ!
My devotions today included perhaps my favorite verses in the entire Bible. I so look forward to Coronation Day! I recall the 90’s when I was really riding high in sports. My favorite teams were all in complete domination of their respective leagues. The Huskers were invincible, the Bulls won 6 championships and the Broncos were enjoying a peerless run. I felt euphoric during those years as my guys were boasting the very best sports had to offer.
But one day, it will be time for the greatest of all greats to reign supreme. He will dominate for all eternity. He will be proved on that day to be matchless and undefeated. His crown will never fade and His kingdom will never fall. His name will be prized as His praise will reverberate throughout the heavens for all time. On that day my Hero, and the Hero of Heaven will raise His arms in ultimate and eternal victory.
Every knee is going to bow in reverence. Every tongue: atheist tongues, Buddhist tongues, Hindu tongues, Muslim tongues, Christian tongues will all confess Him as Lord Sovereign over all the earth and heavens.
Read and rejoice:
Philippians 2:9 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.
