Passion for Praise: 'Kneeling, Facing God'

Thursday, November 17, 2022

Eventually, we're all going to end up kneeling side by side in the place of judgment, facing God. Your critical and condescending ways aren't going to improve your position there one bit. Read it for yourself in Scripture: "As I live and breathe," God says, "every knee will bow before me; Every tongue will tell the honest truth that I and only I am God."
— Romans 14:11-12 MESSAGE
