An Apoetsbrain Original 8/12/21 ©
One quiet night 2000 plus years ago, heaven and earth collided in silence.
A baby was born.
Born to a virgin.
Born to heal the sick
Born to raise the dead
Born to advance human dignity
Born to transform human thought
Born to rescue the hopeless
Born a sacrifice
Born to die
Born to rise
Born as the Son of Man
Born the Son of God
Born to show us the way.
Like John Ortberg put it,
“Jesus’ impact was greater a hundred years after his death than during his life; it was greater still after five hundred years; after a thousand years his legacy laid the foundation for much of Europe; after two thousand years he has more followers in more places than ever.”
Extract from the book Who is this man? : the Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus
