" What Manner of Man is This? "

All religious reformers and messiahs come to live; --He came to die.

All others leave monuments, and memorials; --no one can find His birthplace, grave, nor one possession.

All others write diaries and memoirs; --He wrote on the sand.

All others choose their followers from the rich, powerful, and influential; --He chose the poor and needy.

All others praise human righteousness; --He condemed it.

All others seek those who can help them; --He sought those whom He could help.

All others promise success and happiness to their followers; --He promised tribulation and suffering.

All others hold their disciples with fear and force; --He invited his to leave Him if they would.

All others have palaces, mansions, and headquarters; --He had no place to lay his head.

All others reward the most talented with recongnition, titles, and honor; --He said, "The LEAST shall be greatest.

All others say, "Follow me; I will show you the way;" --He said, "Come to me, I AM THE WAY."

All others claim to be messengers of God; --He said, "He that hath seen me hath seen God!"

All others stay dead; --He arose and all of His claims, works, and promises are true because God raised Him from the dead.

This is describing the Lord Jesus Christ the saviour of the world, epecially of those who believe.
