There's No Man Like This Man!
Pastor Steve N. Wagers
Hebrews 3:3; 7:24; 10:12
1. Joseph Ernest Renan, a French philosopher and historian of the 1800's once said,
"Let the greatest surprises of the future come, but never has there arisen, nor never shall there arise another like Jesus Christ!"
2. I love how the songwriter, Thomas Hastings, put it into words,
"No mortal can with Him compare,
Among the sons of men
Fairer is He than all the fair,
Who fills the Heavenly train!"
3. An anonymous author gave us, what I believe to be a glorious and wonderful description of our Savior, when he wrote:
"More than 2000 years ago, there was a man born 7contrary to the laws of life. This man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity. Only once did he cross the boundary of the country in which He lived; that was during his exile in childhood. In infancy, he startled the king. In childhood, he puzzled the doctors. In manhood he ruled the course of nature, walked upon the billows as if on pavement, and hushed the sea to sleep. He never wrote a book, and yet all of the libraries of the country could not hold the books that have written about Him.
"He never wrote a song, and yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than all of the songwriters combined. He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students. Though time has spread many years between the people of this generation and the scene of the crucifixion; yet, He still lives. Herod could not destroy Him, and the grave could not hold Him. He stands forth upon the highest pinnacle of heavenly glory, proclaimed by God, acknowledged by angels, adored by saints, and feared by devils as the living, personal Christ, our Lord, our Savior, and our God!"
4. This man painted no pictures, wrote no poetry, composed no music; and, never wrote a book. Yet, the greatest artists, poets, composers and authors have received their inspiration from Him.
