This year I have been reading a devotional by Sky Jethani, (who is on the “chicken list” for people I want to be a guest). In one earlier this month he laid out the political revolution that was sparked when Gabriel appeared to Mary and announced the arrival of The One True King. The line from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe occurred to me, and never left: Aslan is on the move.
Aslan is the rightful heir to the throne of Narnia, son of the Emperor Across The Sea. He will overthrow the reign of The White Witch, banish the eternal winter and bring back springtime. If it sounds like The Gospel Story, you are right. It’s supposed to. Jesus infiltrates enemy territory and starts a rebellion not just against Rome, but the Gates of Hell itself. And brings back spring.
The announcement of the baby’s birth sparks a revolution that will shake the very foundations of the world. It sounds like hyperbole, but it’s true. Everything changed. And you had people like Mary and Joseph that welcomed the disruption vs people like Herod, who would murder anyone who got in his way, even toddlers.
It’s another short episode this week. Don’t worry; we’ll get back to blowing things up with hour+ long episodes in the New Year, Lord willin’.
