You Will Bow Before Him

Philippians 2:9–11

In this lab, John Piper reminds us that all religions, all careers, all different life paths will inevitably meet at one point: bowing before King Jesus and proclaiming him Lord of all.

Some questions to ask as you read and study Philippians 2:9–11:

  1. Have you ever bowed to anyone? What does bowing signify?
  2. Does all creation’s bowing and confessing that Jesus is Lord mean that everyone will be saved?
  3. Have you submitted to the lordship of Christ? How can you know for sure if you have?

Principle for Bible Reading


Authors often give us reasons for why someone did a certain action or why we should do a certain action. They typically give the action statement first (e.g. I went to the store/you should go to the store), then a conjunction or connecting word (in this case, usually so that, in order that, or simply that), and finally the reason for the action or the purpose statement.
