Under The Feet of Christ
For He has put all things under His feet. But when He says “all things are put under Him, it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted.
1 Corinthians 15:27
There is a day coming when all things will be under Jesus’s feet; under His absolute control. Yet the first time the Lord Jesus came wasn’t like that at all. Death will be under the Lord Jesus’s feet, and yet as He died they pierced His feet. Sin will be under His feet, and yet He became sin for us. The Devil will be under His feet, and yet He allowed the Devil, through Judas, to betray Him to the Jews. The kingdoms of this world will be under His feet, and yet Jesus let lowly Pontius Pilate take Him and release Him to His death. What a paradox!
One day everyone will bow at the Lord Jesus’s feet. One day He will be openly crowned as Lord of all, because He is worthy. He is Lord, He will reign. Let us willingly subject ourselves to our rightful Lord and King!
What love it was that brought Thee down,
Down to the depths in which I lay.
That made Thee leave Thy glory-throne,
In Servant’s form to tread Thy way;
Yet lower still to death to go,
That I might never judgment know
