Jesus was a total revolutionary in his day.
He shook his generation in such a way that the reverberations of his seismic teachings and radical lifestyle are still creating aftershocks to this day.
Here are some awesome things that famous people have said about him……..
“What does it mean? It’s about being strengthened. It’s about having a backbone run through you from the Person who made you. It’s about being able to climb the biggest mountains in the world with the Person who made them. ”
“No, It’s not farfetched to me. Look, the secular response to the Christ story always goes like this: he was a great prophet, obviously a very interesting guy, had a lot to say along the lines of other great prophets, be they Elijah, Muhammad, Buddha, or Confucious. But actually Christ doesn’t allow you that. He doesn’t let you off the hook. Christ says: ‘No. I am not saying I’m a teacher, don’t call me teacher. I am not saying I’m a prophet. I’m saying ‘I am the Messiah.’ I’m saying: ‘I am God incarnate.””
I don’t think I’m religious. I am spiritual. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I believe that he put me in this position, and that I have to always give him the glory he deserves for putting me here. But I don’t consider myself religious. A lot of people who are religious, I feel like they get lost. They go to church just to go to church. I am not trying to disrespect them at all, you know, whatever works for you; but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to Him.
“Some people mocked me when I announced that I was now following Jesus two years ago, but this is no flash in the pan experience. I’m stronger, freer and happier than I’ve ever been in my life and it gets better and better. Every day is a brand new adventure. I’m a better man for the faith which has been placed in my heart.”
“Kaká told a national audience that nothing in the world compared with the peace of knowing and serving Christ. ‘In 2007 I was named best soccer player in the world,’ he said. ‘This for me was a great honor. But the greatest honor in my life is serving Jesus Christ, because he gives me hope.'”
“People say to me, ‘Nigel, you’ve achieved so much in life, you were two times world champion!’ But I match that up with the Bible and Jesus says in Mark 8v36, ‘What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose your soul?’
“I’ve done all that – I forfeited my soul, my mind, my will and my emotions. What did it profit me? Absolutely nothing! Now I can read the Word of God and match myself up with it. Jesus has shown me how to help people, people who are stuck in that dark pit but who really need help.
All kinds of people, rich, famous, small, tall, handsome, ugly, fat, thin, geeks, dudes have considered their life, purpose and reason for existing and have concluded that “it’s all about Jesus”.
Come and join the revolution…………
