|A lady in Dominican Republic glows with Amen!|
But the interpreter stopped me. “She understood. In Bulgaria, shaking one’s head side to side means ‘yes.’”
You can imagine the difficulty this causes since the majority of countries in the world use this head movement to say “no.”
I thought of this when reading 1 Corinthians 1:18-20 where Paul says his yes means yes, not no. And Paul tells us that Jesus is “God’s ultimate “Yes.”
"For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.” (NLT)
Next time we say “Amen” which literally means “so be it,” let's think about this deeper Biblical meaning!
1000 Gifts: I'm praising God today for our "Ultimate Amen"--Jesus Christ our Lord and all of the promises He fulfills in our lives and in eternity.
