Greatest man in history, had no servants, yet they called him Master. 

Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. 

Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. 

He had no army, yet kings feared Him.

 He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. 

He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. 

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. 

His name is Jesus.

Food For Thought

The great illusion that we must all overcome is the illusion of separateness. 

It is almost the only task of religion—to communicate not worthiness but union, to reconnect people to their original identity “hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3). 

The Bible calls that state of separateness “sin,” and its total undoing is stated frequently as God’s clear job description:

 “My dear people, we are already the children of God; it is only what is in the future that has not yet been revealed, and then all we know is that we shall be like him” (1 John 3:2).
