“[F]or God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosever believeth in Him shall not periesh, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV
Revolutions are an integral part of the history of mankind. Revolutions are taking place all over the world even as you read this. The most recent, most reported revolution is Syria’s civil war which formed part of the Arab Spring. The French Revolution is another important revolution that changed the course of history. We are still experiencing its effects today.
Revolutionaries, like Che Guevarra and Napoleon Bonaparte, usually fight for three ideals: freedom, equality, and fraternity. The first two ideals are easy to see while the last is their product, to a certain extent.
Now these three ideals we find in Christianity as well. In fact, Christ, the greatest Revolutionary ever, came to give man freedom from sin, to break the chains of slavery and racial prejudice, and to all of us He offers fraternal love, a place to belong in the brotherhood that is His Body, the Christian Church.
Jesus wants us to revolutionise the world just as He did His. Are ready to enlist?
Dear Father, thank You for sending Christ to die for our sins and to set us free. Help us to be revolutionanies too. In Jesus’ Name, I pray.
