Who Is Jesus Christ-Part 1

December 29, 2015

 

Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus came from the throne of His Father in heaven to the womb of a virgin girl. He became the Son of Man, that we might become the sons of God. He was born in a supernatural way, lived in poverty, and was reared in obscurity. He had neither wealth nor influence, yet the wisdom of men has never matched His wisdom. Never has a man spoken like this Man.

His family was poor and humble. At His birth, he alarmed King Herod. As a boy, He stunned theologians with His knowledge and wisdom, for He was taught of God.  In manhood, He ruled the elements and quieted the sea. He healed the multitudes without medicine. He fed thousands from a boy’s lunch. He raised three people from the dead.

Demons obeyed Him. He never wrote a book, yet all the libraries in the world could not contain all the books that have been written about Him. He never wrote a song, yet He has been the theme of more songs than all song writers combined. He never founded a college, yet all colleges together cannot boast of as many students as He has. He never marshaled an army, yet no leader ever had more volunteers.

Great men have come and gone yet He lives on. Herod could not kill Him. Satan could not tempt Him to sin.  Death could not destroy Him. The grave could not hold Him. He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor.  He slept in another’s manger; He rode on another’s donkey; He was buried in another’s grave. He conquered death and rose on the third day, as He said He would. He ascended to Heaven and is now at the right hand of our Father in Heaven.

One day, He will return and take us to be with Him in Heaven forever.
