The Bible consists of sixty-six books and letters, over a thousand chapters and hundreds of thousands of words, each with their own unique contribution to our understanding of the Author. In all of my studies and exploration of the Bible, I have run across few words with as much personal impact as the word "megaluno". For example, I am moved by the truth of the word "pisteuo" which is the Greek term translated to "believeth" in the King James Version of John 3:16; because it does not mean simply acknowledging the possibility of Jesus being the Christ, but instead it means a unwavering conviction and confidence in work and person of Jesus Christ. The same could be said of the Hebrew term "torah" which does not mean rules and regulations as one might expect, but the action of pointing down a path...and all paths in the Bible lead to that same Jesus.

The word "megaluno" means to enlarge, to magnify, to show as great. In Luke 1:46, Mary, the mother of Jesus, proclaims the greatness (megaluno) of God upon realizing the blessing of carrying the promised Christ in her womb; in the book of Acts the people proclaimed the greatness of God's work through the apostles (5:13), Peter was amazed by the gentiles proclamation of the greatness of God (megaluno) when they too experienced the indwelling of the Spirit (10:46), when the power of faith in the name of Jesus alone proved to have influence over the demon in Ephesus, the entire city was led to magnify (megaluno) His name and repent (19:17); in Phillipians, Paul writes to the Christ-followers in Phillippi "My eager expectation and hope is that I will not be ashamed about anything, but that now as always, with all boldness, Christ will be highly honored (megaluno) in my body, whether by life or by death." (1:20 HCSB).

Our lives and our actions should be characterized by our passion for magnifying Christ Jesus to a world so desperately in need of Him. I know that we are all in agreement on that critical point, but it begs the question: How can we, such poor reflections of the majesty of Christ, reflect His light for the world to see?

I believe that the only way that we can succeed in reaching the world with the light of Christ is to allow the Spirit which indwells us to reflect the Christ, and we must simply get out of the way. I often need to remind myself that the same Spirit which indwelled King David, the same Spirit which indwelled Esther, the same Spirit which indwelled Abraham and Deborah and Samson and Mary and Paul and Peter...indwells me, and every other child of God that "believeth" in the person and work of Christ Jesus.

That same Spirit provided us with the gifts that we use to magnify Him, and the fruit (product) that testifies to the transformational relationship available to all who place their faith in Christ alone.

I pray that article will encourage you to learn more about Jesus, to exercise your Spiritual gifts, to demonstrate the Spirit's product (fruit) in your life...and above all else, to live a life dedicated to "megaluno Christos"...magnifying the indescribable greatness of Jesus Christ.

Let's show the world His light, reflected by our lives.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
