BOW THE KNEE

27 Apr

Easter Sunday is such an exciting time!  It is a chance to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  But, to really begin thinking about the resurrection, we have to look back in Scripture just a bit.  Looking at Matthew 27:29-31, I noticed a phrase that hasn’t really stuck out to me before.  It says that they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him.  They bowed the knee…not in praise…not in respect…not as King…but to mock Him.  How humiliating and disgraceful!
Isaiah 53 reminds us that Jesus was sacrificed for us – lost, confused, and even disrespectful sheep – US!
They may have bowed the knee then in disgrace – but the 3rd Day would come!!
Matthew 28:1-9 tells us of how the women came to the tomb looking Him.  When they found that He had arisen, they came to Him and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him!  They bowed the knee is adoration.
They bowed the knee is respect.  They bowed the knee in worship.  They bowed the knee to THE KING! 
How about us?  Do we bow the knee?  Do we bow the knee in adoration? In respect? In faith? In worship??
Do we bow the knee to the Savior or do we instead try to live our life our way?
Do we bow the knee to the Savior or do we try to fight our own battles?
Do we bow the knee to the Savior or do we allow this world to consume our lives?
What an awesome privilege to bow the knee to the Lord and to know that He hears us!  Jesus made a way for us to have a relationship!  How can we not bow the knee to the One who deserves all praise and worship?!
