The Undisputed Champion of All Times!

We often play the game of "WHO IS THE GREATEST." We try to identify who is the greatest in a particular area. For instance, who is the greatest golfer? Is it Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan or Rory McElroy? Who is the greatest in basketball: The Celtics or the Lakers? Who is the greatest businessman? Some would say John D. Rockefeller or Andrew Carnegie. Maybe it's Bill Gates or Warren Buffett. What about in art? Some would contend that Leonardo da Vinci is the greatest artist of all times. But others would appropriately argue that Michelangelo was even greater. From music to medicine, everyone has an opinion on who is the greatest.
You could pile up all human greatness into a Mount Everest of accomplishment. However, that impressive mountain would shrink into a mole hill of insignificance when compared to the eternal greatness of JESUS! God's Word provides us with the transcending truth in Philippians 2:9-11 where we discover that "God has exalted Jesus Christ and given Him the name which is above every name; that at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father."
Be assured, my beloved friends, every tongue that has ever been created from the beginning of time, will confess that Jesus is Lord. Some will confess His Lordship in validating joy while others will confess His supremacy amidst horrific judgmentbecause He is truly the greatest--the undisputed champion that reigns as "King of Kings and Lord of Lords!"
So here is our assignment: exalt the name of Jesus with our lips and with our lives until He comes again or until He calls us Home!
