The Majesty of Christ (2)

A Six-day devotional for private and family use

God the Almighty

Majesty is an unfamiliar concept in Ameria. We have an elected president, not a monarchy. This makes it difficult to fully grasp a person being majestic. In the first talk, we came to the conclusion that Jesus was the most famous person we will ever meet. He is Majesty and his majesty is more glorious than any structure built by human beings.

Knowing Jesus gloriously reigns should and will make an impact on our lives. That impact occurs when we come to worship on Sunday morning.

Recently in South Carolina, my family and I experienced a full solar eclipse. We drove down to a rest area off of I-26 just west of Columbia. It lasted for over two hours but the actual shadow of the moon only lasted for 90 seconds.

When the moon completely covered the sun, it became so dark that the parking lights came on, the traffic on the interstate had to turn on their headlights, and the frogs began croaking as if it was evening.

As amazing as that moment was, what was even more amazing was the sun’s power to illuminate the earth. With 99% of the sun covered it still had enough power to light the earth. We often take for granted the power of the Sun until it’s hidden in an event like a solar eclipse.

A Six-day devotional for private and family use

Introduction to The Majesty of Christ: He is glorious.

Over the next two weeks we are going on a journey, an adventure, to discover that God is majestic and to let that truth influence how you view worship.

Read these talks during your private devotions with God or print all six of them and use them for daily family devotions for the next six days. Start reading them aloud on Monday and finish on Saturday. This will prepare you for Sunday morning worship.

I promise you will not view worship in the same way after reading these devotions.

A woman entered a Haagen-Dazs store on the Kansas City Plaza for an ice-cream cone. After making her selection, she turned around and found herself face to face with Paul Newman. He was in town filming the movie Mr. & Mrs. Bridge. He smiled and said hello. Noticing Newman’s blue eyes caused her knees to shake. She managed to pay for her cone, then left the store abruptly with her heart pounding. When she gained composure, she noticed her snack was missing. Returning to the store she met Newman at the door. “Are you looking for your ice-cream?” he asked. Unable to speak she simply nodded. “You put it in your purse with your change.”
