You Can't Ignore Jesus

By Andrea Merrell

The authority of the name of Jesus 
causes every knee to bow in reverence!
Everything and everyone will one day submit 
to this name—in the heavenly realm,
in the earthly realm, and in the demonic realm.
Philippians 2:10 TPT 

“What do you think about Jesus?” the man asked.

The girl frowned in confusion, then shrugged her shoulders. “Actually, I don’t think about Him at all.”

It was one of those street interviews with random passersby. Other answers ranged from “nice guy” to “fairy tale dude.” But my thoughts kept going back to the girl’s answer. How could anyone not think about Him at all?

Some people might misunderstand Him or even hate what He stands for, but the truth is Jesus cannot be ignored. The Bible tells us that one day every single knee will submit and bow to that name.

Jesus. What a beautiful, wonderful, glorious, powerful name. The name above all names. The name that loves, saves, heals, delivers, guides, forgives, strengthens, and comforts. The name that never fails.

Jesus. King of all kings and Lord of all lords.

The name that cannot be ignored.
