Luke 1:46-47 “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.”
Philippians 2:10-11 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, or things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
A few weeks ago, we celebrated the 246thanniversary of the Boston Tea Party. On December 16th, 1773, a large group of American colonists boarded three British boats and dumped 342 boxes of tea into Boston Harbor. It was a tangible sign of revolutionary change by a few that impacted many.
On the day after the Boston Tea Party, John Adams wrote the following:
“This is the most magnificent Movement of all. There is a Dignity, a Majesty, a Sublimity, in this last Effort of the Patriots, that I greatly admire. The People should never rise, without doing something to be remembered – something notable and striking. This Destruction of Tea is so bold, so daring, so firm, intrepid and inflexible, and it must have so important Consequences, and so lasting, that I can’t but consider it as an Epocha in History.”
Christ’s arrival on this earth was a sterling example of such revolutionary change – a tangible sign by God that impacted all. It was bold and daring. It was notable and striking. It was characterized by dignity, majesty, and sublimity. Its resulted in the most important and lasting of consequences. It was the most notable Epocha of History, and it started a magnificent movement.
What are you and I doing now to live up to this most magnificent movement? What do we plan to do for Christ in 2020 that is revolutionary? PLEASE PRAY THAT WE WOULD FULLY INVEST OURSELVES IN THE DIGNIFIED, MAJESTIC, AND SUBLIME MOVEMENT OF CHRIST IN 2020. It is the most magnificent movement of all!
