We sing “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name,” and so we should. But it would do us good to pause and think about that power–because we are flat-out lost without it.
Don’t believe me? Look at places, look into people’s lives, where that power is explicitly denied. Look at the shambles we’ve made of our world. I glanced at the news for just two or three minutes this morning and got sick to my stomach.
We and our world wouldn’t last another 15 minutes without the power of God’s grace.
