I. CONTRAST THE GLORY WHICH THE SON OF GOD RENOUNCED WITH THE GLORY WHICH HAS BEEN BESTOWED UPON HIM BECAUSE OF THAT RENUNCIATION. Contrast also the position of a servant which he voluntarily took, with the position of Lord which he thereby won. Although exalted to be Lord, he still remains in the likeness of men; for it is as Man that he won his kingship, and as Man that he draws all men to himself.


1. Wonder and adoration. Wonder that One in our own nature should be thus exalted, and that prayer may now be addressed to One who is still our fellowman! All creation worships him in whom creation is united to its Creator.

2. Faith. Every tongue is to confess that Jesus is the Lord. This is the essential Christian creed. In it is contained all Christian doctrine and practice. It is Jesus, the loving Son of man, who is exalted to be our Lord. The change in his condition does not change his disposition, which is that revealed to us in the gospel story. All power is now given to him who is all loving. What further revelation of God can we need?

III. THE FINAL PURPOSE OF HIS WORK AND OF OUR CONFESSION OF FAITH IN HIM. "The glory of God the Father:" The humiliation and exaltation of the Son, the loving adoration of mankind, have this as their final object. - V.W.H.

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow

1. Not the present, which would not be the fact, and besides the text is a prophecy. Many objects are now worshipped: riches, pleasure, etc.

2. At the judgment, when every usurper will be dethroned, and every rebel crushed.


1. His willing and devoted servants.

2. Others will bow unwillingly.

III. THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS EVENT. Jesus will reign with undisputed sway.

1. Sin will be banished from His dominions.

2. There will be no more contention.

3. There will be no more weakness or sorrow.

4. There will be no more fear of death.

(W. H. Davison.)


1. In heaven and on earth.

2. In the control of providence and grace.

3. In the administration of mercy and judgment.


1. By His enemies as by His friends.

2. To this end He is exalted at the right hand of God.


1. In the accomplishment of His purpose.

2. The revelation of His character.

3. The completion of His kingdom.

(J. Lyth, D. D.)

I. THE CLAIMS OF CHRIST upon our faith; submission; obedience; love.

II. HIS POWER TO ENFORCE THEM. He is exalted; as Lord of all.

III. THE CERTAINTY OF THEIR FINAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT. Every knee shall bow, etc.; to the glory of God the Father.

(J. Lyth, D. D.)

Before many a Popish shrine on the continent one sees exhibited a great variety of crutches, together with wax models of arms, legs, and other limbs. These are supposed to represent the cures wrought by devotion at that altar; the memorials of the healing power of the saint. Poor miserable superstition all of it, and yet what a reminder to the believer in Jesus as to his duty and his privilege! Having pleaded at the feet of Jesus, we have found salvation; have we remembered to record this wonder of His hand? If we hung up memorials of all His matchless grace, what crutches, and bandages, and trophies of every sort should we pile together!

(C. H. Spurgeon.)

At a missionary meeting on the Island of Raratonga, in the Pacific Ocean, an old man, who wished to join the Church, rose and said, "I have lived during the reign of four kings. In the first we were continually at war, and a fearful season it was watching and hiding with fear. During the reign of the second we were overtaken with a severe famine, and all expected to perish; then we ate rats and grass and this wood and that wood. During the third we were conquered, and became the peck and prey of the two other settlements of the island; then if a man went to fish he rarely ever returned, or if a woman went far away to fetch food she was rarely ever seen again. But during the reign of this third king we were visited by another King, a great King, a good King, a peaceful King, a King of love, Jesus, the Lord from heaven. He has gained the victory. He has conquered our hearts; therefore we now have peace and plenty in this world, and hope soon to dwell with Him in heaven."

(R. Brewin.)

Victorinus, a teacher of rhetoric at Rome, was in his old age converted to Christianity, and came to Simplicianus, one eminent at that time for his piety, whispering in his ear softly these words, "I am a Christian;" but this holy man answered, "I will not believe it, nor count thee so, till I see thee among the Christians in the church," at which he laughed, saying, "Do then those walls make a Christian? cannot I be such except I openly profess it, and let the world know the same?" This he said for fear, being yet but a young convert, though an old man; but some time after, when he was more confirmed in the faith, and had seriously considered that if he should continue thus ashamed of Christ, He would be ashamed of him at last, he changed his purpose, and came to Simplicianus, saying, "Let us go to the church, I will now in earnest be a Christian." And there he made an open confession, observing that "as he had openly professed rhetoric, which was not essential to salvation, he ought not to be afraid to own the Word of God in the congregation of the faithful."

(W. H. Baxendale.)

Of one of the statues in the Campanile, Florence, it is said that Donatello, when giving it the last stroke of his chisel, exclaimed, in enthusiastic admiration, "Speak!" So Christ, when He calls men from their sins and recreates them in His own image, says, "Tell what things God hath done for you."
