Have you ever met someone who has done something great…truly great? Maybe they were a fighter pilot in WWII. Perhaps they rescued someone from a burning building. Maybe they built a company that employs thousands. Those who do great things are worthy of respect and admiration. But, there is only one person at whose name ever knee will bend and every tongue confess that he is King of kings and Lord of lords. At the name of Jesus, everyone – no matter the nation, tribe, tongue – will be overwhelmed, and worship.
Are you overwhelmed with the glory of Jesus? Dr. Kevin Smith, Executive Director of the Baptist Convention of Maryland & Delaware looks to the word of God – John chapter 1 – and reminds us all that if we truly look at Jesus and truly listen to him we will be overwhelmed. And this is a necessary thing for Christians! Our conversations, our witness needs to be filled with the astonishment and glory of God made flesh. Hear the songs, listen to the word preached, and join in to be overwhelmed with the presence of the one who is fully man and fully God.
