One Solitary Life
He was born in an obscure village. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. he then bacame an itinerate preacher. He nver held an office. He never had a family or owned a house. He didn't go to colleg. He had no credentials but Himself. He was only thirty-three when the public turned against Him. His friends ran away. He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a cross between two thieves. While he was dying, His executioners gambled for His clothing, the only property He had on earth. He was laid in a borrowed grave.
Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race. All the armies that have marched, al the navies that ever sailed, all the parliements that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned have not affected the life on man on this earth as much as that One Solitary Life.
Ok, this is probably not what you were expecting me to write. I like the last paragraph, it is very true. However, the first part of that thing is very "corny, perky, iffy"!? It made Jesus sound like a poor little boy. I have a different twist on that. Jesus Christ was a Man of authority. Even to Mary, he refered to her as "woman" and the only parent he ever talked about was his Heavenly Father. He made the lame to walk, the blind to see, he healed the demon posessed...I can't even watch a scary movie, walked on water....he told Peter "get thee behind me, satan", he resisted the devil 4o days and fell not into temptation, oh and he was on an empty stomach...he wilingly walked into the garden of Gethsemane and was the only one that did not fall asleep but kept steadfast into prayer, even on the cross he got the thief next to him saved......and my personal favorite, he went and preached unto the spirits in prison (1 Peter 3:19)!!!! That does not sound like a poor little boy. He is Jesus Christ the Saviour.
Needless to say, it is my bookmark no more.
