The devil wants the dictionary. He wants to define what words mean and who is allowed to use them.
- But the world was created with words defined by God.
In both the church and the world, the battle has always been over teh dcitionary because words define the way things are.
As God's ambassadors our mission includes the right naming of this world and the world to come according to the definitions that God has given us.
Jesus, the eternal, incarnate Son of God became a man and entered into this world in order to save it. Which He did.
Jesus stands at the centre of all human history. More than that, he is the author of all history. He ate fish for breakfast, taught ordinary people, wept, cared for the sick, confronted sin and then came back from the dead.To Quote C. S Lewis,
"You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to."
