Men have tried for years to prove or disprove what the life and death of Jesus meant to the world. The recorded events of prophesy and of His life are explained in detail in the Bible. Yet there are many who sincerely refute this historical record. Unfortunately, they are sincerely wrong. Here is a written snapshot of one man’s sincere belief:
‘Neath starry skies, the shepherds came
Led by the angel choir.
A child was born to take our shame
And set our souls on fire.
When as a child, He tried to teach,
The wise men were surprised.
To find a boy who knew to preach,
With words so undisguised.
For many years He worked with wood
Until the time had come
For Him to serve the common good
His Father said, “My Son.”
A mountain top He went to pray.
The devil tempted Him.
The spoken Word kept him at bay.
and kept the Lord from sin.
Twelve men he chose to spread the Word–
The first of many more.
They weren’t too sure of what they heard,
But they could not ignore.
The miracles that He performed–
He called Himself God’s son.
The tortured lives that He transformed
Made Him the Holy One.
He taught His followers to pray,
First giving God their praise.
Believe in Him, and come what may,
His answers would amaze.
The leaders of that ancient time
Felt threatened by this Man.
The Son of God charged with a crime
Yet this was still God’s plan.
The Roman court soon heard their cries.
He knew it was His time.
They nailed HIs hands and then His feet,
Just like a guilty man.
His human life came to an end.
For all the world to see.
Then down to hell He did descend
To set the captives free.
His Father’s plan was incomplete
Until He rose again.
Both death and hell He did defeat
To God He did ascend..
He promised them before He rose
That they would have a place
To give them peace from all their foes
And see Him face to face.
The promise that to them He gave
Still works for us today.
He came to earth to heal and save
Forever and a day.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
And why isn’t even more written about what He did? Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written. (John 21:25)
