That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

Only Jesus

~ Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. Luke 7:11-15 ~

Only Jesus Christ can utter the words "weep not" to a widow weeping over the death of her only son! I am always amazed at the words of the Lord Jesus Christ. You don't tell a widow not to weep over the death of her only son. That is just strange, and sounds almost improper.

Ah, but only Jesus can utter those comforting words, because only Jesus can give life to the dead child and deliver him back to his mother. Only Jesus has this kind of compassion and only He can turn that which is impossible to possible.

Only, and only Jesus!
