What Stirs You?
They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am." Luke 22:70 (NIV)
When Jesus was asked about His relationship with God, He replied that He was indeed the Son of God. This seemingly simple answer sent the crowd into a frenzy and eventually created a firestorm that eventually led to Jesus' crucifixion. "He stirs up people by his teaching," the leaders said. Stirs them up?
What happens in your heart when you read or hear these words? Are you stirred up? It seems wherever Jesus went, He stirred things up—either anger and resentment, or unparalleled devotion and loyalty. Jesus said in Revelation 3:15, "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other."
What is your worship like? Are stirred up? I hope worship creates great adoration and awe in you—that as you consider all that Jesus has done for you, including the cross, it brings you to tears and to your knees. Don't let your worship become lukewarm, and if it has, go for a walk on the beach, a hike in the woods, or some other activity that gets you alone with God and His creation. As you spend time with Him, you will be refreshed and renewed.
Let the Son of God stir you up.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11 NKJV)
But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him." (Hebrews 1:6 NKJV)
