Philippians 2:5-11

 

 

In his 1875 book on the history of hymns, Edwin Long tells of a missionary in India named Reverend E. P. Scott who determined to reach a dangerous tribe with the Gospel. His friends sought to dissuade him, saying, "We will never see you again." He said, "But I must carry Jesus to them." Traveling through the area, Scott found himself surrounded by warriors brandishing spears pointed at his chest. The missionary, expecting to die, quietly extracted his violin from its case, closed his eyes, and decided to die singing "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name."


The expected attack didn't come. On the third verse ("Let every kindred, every tribe, on this terrestrial ball…"), Scott opened his eyes to see the spears lowered and tears in the eyes of the warriors. Reverend Scott went on to devote years of labor to evangelizing this tribe.


The power of the Lord Jesus exceeds all the dangers and demands of earth. Nothing is too difficult for Him, and no prayer too hard to answer. Praise Him today for His power, find strength in His omnipotence, and crown Him Lord of all.

All hail the power of Jesus' name! Let angels prostrate fall; bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.

It took Thomas Jefferson about seventeen days to write the Declaration of Independence. J.R.R. Tolkien took considerably longer to write The Lord of the Rings. He wrote to his publisher in February 1938, indicating he had completed the first chapter; and another letter, dated February 1950, contained news that the last chapter was finished.
