2 Corinthians 1:20 - For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

Being in agreement and unified with others is a powerful thing. That’s why protests can be efficient. When you have one person yelling in the crowd, it’s a little annoying. When you have many voices chanting among others, it’s something to be noticed. Being in agreement and unified for the right reason and cause is even more powerful.
I think that’s a valuable lesson we miss sometimes in our relationship with God. Prophets in the Old testament many times seem to be lone voices crying out to a people who don’t want to listen. However they were not just shouting out ramblings and nonsense, they were proclaiming the very words of God that he put in their mouths. They were not lone voices, but they represented the truth of the Creator.
We see how people rise up in protests today. They are standing up for people and causes that need to be heard. Sometimes those protests lead to violence and more disruption. Whether these protests are right or wrong, is sometimes beside the point. There is a crowd, so people will listen.
In our lives though, we need to be in agreement and unified for a single definable cause - that’s the cause of Christ. God’s Word is inerrant and faultless. When we say “Amen” to that Word, when we agree and are unified with it, more can be accomplished with that “Yes” than any protest or shouting in the crowd.
Make the first small, yet most powerful stand today that you can - say “Amen” to the words and promises of God and witness that agreement change the world through Christ.
