The Greatest One is still here

17 December 2013, 14:41

Every time a great leader dies, many wonder if there will be another one like him or her. A new leader is always compared if he will be able to fit into his predecessors great shoes. Even Jesus suffered the same comparison from the Jews as they told him openly about their biblical heroes. They once challenged him by asking are you greater than our father Abraham? He told them Abraham was glad to see His days. When they laughed him off saying he was too young to have seen Abraham, he replied saying before Abraham was I am. Jesus was saying i am greater than your greatest hero. When he did the miracle of fish and loaves they asked Him about Moses who gave manna from heaven. He replied telling them that manna they ate was not the real bread from heaven and that He was the bread of Life which God Himself has given to the world – John 6. He was saying a greater one than Moses is here. When a woman marvelled at His works and cried blessed is the womb that carried you and the breast that you sucked, Jesus said not so fast – wait and see how the Queen Sheba will rise up on judgment day and condemn your generation; for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. Luke 11:27-31. In describing Jesus the Bible says greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends Joh_15:13.Yet Jesus gave his life for both his friends and enemies. The Bible states in Rom 5:7 that very few people will die to save the life of someone else, even if it is for a good person but Jesus died for both. Because Jesus agreed to stoop this low God highly exalted him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name. At the mention of his name every knee and every tongue, whether in heaven, earth or under the earth, shall concede that Jesus Christ is the greatest being ever - Php 2: 8- 11 But this Jesus did even more, instead of sitting high above in his greatness; He chose to make others as great as He is. As many as believed in Him, He gave them power to be counted as one with Him. So now if you have believed in Jesus, heaven counts you to be as great. Because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1Jn_4:4. The Greatest One lives in you. And because you are still alive today, it means the greatest one is still here. You.
