Jesus :)

2/29/2012

He put on humanity that we might put on divinity. He became the Son of Man that we might become sons of God. He was born contrary to the laws of nature, lived in poverty, was reared in obscurity, and only once crossed the boundary of the land in which He was born—and that in His childhood. He had no wealth or influence and had neither training nor education in the world’s schools. His relatives were inconspicuous and uninfluential. In infancy He startled a king. In boyhood He puzzled the learned doctors. In manhood He ruled the course of nature. He walked upon the billows and hushed the sea to sleep. He healed multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His services. He never wrote a book and yet the libraries of the world could not hold the books about Him. He never wrote a song, yet has furnished the theme for more songs than all songwriters together. He never founded a college, yet all the schools together cannot boast as many students as He has. He never practiced medicine and yet He has healed more broken hearts than doctors have healed broken bodies. This Jesus Christ is the star of astronomy, the rock of geology, the lion and lamb of zoology, the harmonizer of all discords, and the healer of all diseases. Throughout history great men have come and gone, yet He lives on. Herod could not kill Him. Satan could not seduce Him. Death could not destroy Him and the grave could not hold Him.

[and He loves us and wants us to be a part of fulfilling HIS DREAM!]

(MacArthur Commentary on Hebrews)
