The greatest message ever told...

The greatest message ever told ~ by our heavenly Father no less ~ is ~ "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believeth in me ~ though he were dead, yet shall he live. And He who liveth and believeth in me shall never die!"

As I sat on a bench in the park in my back yard, I thought of what inspired us spiritually. When a well-spoken Minister gives his congregation an inspiring message on their Spiritual beliefs ~ regardless of their beliefs ~ it feeds his congregations Spiritual needs. In turn ~ their enthusiasm feeds the Ministers enthusiasm (and his ego), resulting in a contented ~ happy and growing congregation! Yet the greatest message ever given by a Spiritual teacher known as Jesus of Nazareth, fell on non comprehending ears ~ resulting in characterizing Him as the man of sorrows. I have come to realize that you cannot 'convert' the sheep ~ you must first convert the Shepherd!

As they have hated me ~ so shall they hate you He said! For this same message, is no more believed today than it was when He walked through Galilee some 2100 years ago.

The following is a song composed and sung by Philip Bliss:

Hallelujah! What a savior.

Man of Sorrows! What a name

For the Son of God who came,

Ruined sinners to reclaim.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,

In my place condemned He stood;

Sealed my pardon with His blood.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;

Spotless Lamb of God was He;

"Full atonement!" Can it be?

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;

"It is finished!" was His cry;

Now in Heav'n exalted high.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,

All His ransomed home to bring,

Then anew His song we'll sing:

Hallelujah! What a Savior!
