Jesus

jesusDostoevsky, the Russian novelist wrote of Jesus, there is no one deeper, lovelier, more sympathetic and more perfect than Jesus – not only is there no one else like him, there never could be….anyone like him.”

 

Jesus is distinctive! Jesus is incredible! Jesus is unlike any person you’ve ever met before! Jesus is in every way… the One and Only unique person in human history who is, in every way, superior to all who have come before him; and above all who will come after him.

 

Another writer put it this way: “Jesus came from the bosom of the Father to the bosom of a woman. He put on humanity that we might put on divinity. He became the Son of man that we might become the 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 unimportant. 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 seas asleep. He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His services. He never wrote a book, yet all the libraries of the world could not hold all of the books that have been written about him. He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than all the songwriters everywhere put together. He never founded a college, yet all the schools together cannot boast of as many students as He has. He never practiced medicine, and yet He has healed more broken hearts than the doctors have healed broken bodies.”

 

This Jesus, the one they call Christ, is the star of astronomy; the rock of geology; the lion and the lamb of zoology; the harmonizer of all discords; and the healer of all diseases! And 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. This is our Jesus…the preeminent one…our One and Only!” He is above all!

 

Here at NewLife we have no one greater to share with you than Jesus; for it is He who is the Head of our Church to whom we owe our ultimate allegiance!
