Following the crowd, or following Christ

Following the crowd, or following Christ

People said that Christopher Columbus would sail off the edge of the earth, but in 1492 he discovered America.

 

People laughed at the Wright brothers’ attempts to create a flying machine, but in 1903 they flew the first airplane.

Albert Einstein’s teachers failed him in school, but he went on to be the most famous scientist of the twentieth century.

Musicians and critics booed the music of Richard Wagner, but his compositions transformed the music world.

Westinghouse was called a fool for daring to stop a train with wind, but today his airbrakes are used the world over.

People called Abraham Lincoln a country bumpkin, but he went on to become one of our most respected presidents.

We smile at the crowd’s failure to appreciate something new or different. But being wrong can be a serious problem when it comes to our relationship to God. Too much is at stake.

GLMX #70: Start Your New Year Off Right by Getting to Know God

New Year - 2012

New Year - 2012

To begin the year with God is more important than anything else in this world. The Bible says in Isaiah 55:6-7: “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon”.

 

The dawning of a new year serves to remind us that we are all marching through time, heading for eternity. Awaiting each traveler is either a glad and glorious heaven in the presence of God, or a sad and sorrowful hell, banished from God. The eternal Son of God entered into time as the man Christ Jesus to make a way for sinful man to approach God and enter into life eternal. His death, burial and resurrection have fully accomplished this objective so that Jesus now proclaims in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me”.

GLMX #69: Just Jesus: Some of the Greatest Things Ever Said About the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived

The Angel said in Matthew 1:21, “And she [Mary] shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.”

If you don’t know who Jesus Christ is, allow me to introduce you to Him from the powerful testimonies of others:

Philip Schaff: “Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander the Great, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, He shed more light on things human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of school, He spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art, and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.”

Kenneth Scott Latourette: “As the centuries pass, the evidence is accumulating that, measured by His effect on history, Jesus is the most influential life ever lived on this planet.”

Henry Ward Beecher: “Jesus painted no pictures. Yet some of the greatest paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci received their inspiration from Him. Jesus wrote no poetry; but Dante, Milton, and scores of the world’s greatest poets were inspired by Him. Jesus composed no music; but Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, and Bach reached their highest perfection in the symphonies and oratorios they composed in His praise. Every sphere of human greatness has been influenced by this humble carpenter of Nazareth!”

Napoleon Bonaparte: I know men; and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for him.

Charles H. Spurgeon: “I have a great need for Christ; I have a great Christ for my need.”

GLMX #68: Christmas Has No Meaning Outside Of Jesus Christ

The nativity

The nativity

For many of us, Christmas is one of our favorite times of the year. It is nice to get a break from our normal routines and to spend time with our family and friends. Many families have special Christmas customs and traditions, involving decorations, meals, songs, and the exchanging of gifts with loved ones. All of these things are very nice, but is this the true meaning of Christmas?

 

It seems that every year the stores put up their Christmas displays earlier and earlier, and that each year there is increasing pressure to buy more and more expensive gifts. There also seems to be a competition to see who can put up the largest and most elaborate display of decorations. With all of these things, it is very easy to lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas.

But as we strip away the layers of glitter, commercialism, and tradition that surround the celebration of Christmas, the holiday’s true meaning becomes easier to see. Here we can see a star that reminds us of the star that the wise men followed two thousand years ago while seeking the newborn King. Who is this King? As the angels said to the shepherds in Luke 2:11, “Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”. Christmas is the day that we celebrate the birth of the Christ—Jesus the Son of God.

GLMX #67: “Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards Men” — What it Really Means

Luke 2:14 reads, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

Peace on earth? It doesn’t look like it. The world is full of conflict. Since the angels’ announcement we have seen an endless string of wars. The peace announced by the angels and brought by Jesus was very different than the end of war itself because fighting and war has gone on since the time of Jesus.
