In all of history and in all of humanity, no one in this planet who was born, lived, died had ever came back to life, left, and will come back again except Jesus Christ. Did it every occur to you or do you know anyone else in existence having the wherewithal to enter and exit our world defying multi-dimensional realms? If you haven't thought about it, maybe it's time that you do.
How shameful it is when we mourn celebrities who pass away and pay tribute about their lives but don't even give Jesus a second thought. The one and only who not only contributed to all of humankind while He was alive but continues to do so to this very day and forevermore!
You may say that Jesus walked the earth eons ago and you may even doubt He ever existed. But if you put it in perspective, the likes of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Charlie Chaplin, etc. are still being memorialized and kept alive to this day, re-living their contributions to this world via their records, stories, videos, etc. and we pass them along to the next generation as role models.
Similarly, the Bible is the legacy of Jesus Christ, a tribute to His existence in this world and is THE WORD that is still relevant and applicable to this life. But yet, it is doubted, He is doubted, forgotten and crucified over and over again with so much hate.
Think about this. If Jesus is the King of the coming world, this world and eternal life, then how can He not be the King of our lives? I believe that if anyone deserves reverence, worship, perfect example, etc., it is Jesus! He should be numero uno in our lives. In return, He will bless you with an abundant life here and for the one after. Caring for God is caring for your own soul!
Death is inevitable for all of us, whether or not we leave a lasting legacy on earth. We all want to be remembered. But when we are remembered, we ought to strive to be remembered as Christ is remembered, the one who sacrificed His life to save ours, because that type of remembrance is significant for the good of all mankind.
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
