"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." John 7:37-38 
     More than two thousand years ago there was a man born contrary to the laws of life.  This man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity.  He received no formal education and never possessed wealth or wide spread influence.  He never traveled extensively.  He only once crossed the boundary of the country in which He lived but this man's life has changed the course of history.
     In infancy, He startled a king.  In childhood, He taught teachers.  In manhood, He ruled the course of nature, walked upon the waves and hushed the sea to sleep.  He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His services.
     He never wrote a book.  Yet His life has inspired more books than any other man.  He never wrote a song.  Yet He furnished the theme for more songs than all songwriters combined.  He never founded a college but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students.
     He never marshaled an army, nor drafted a soldier, nor fired a gun.  Yet no leader ever had more rebels surrender to Him without a shot fired.  He never practiced psychiatry.  Yet , He has healed more broken hearts than all the doctors far and near.
     Once a week, the wheels of commerce cease their turning, and multitudes gather to pay homage and respect to Him.
     Though time has spread two thousand years between the people of this generation and His birth, He still lives.  His enemies could not destroy Him and the grave could not hold Him.
     This man stands forth upon the highest pinnacle of heavenly glory, proclaimed of God, acknowledged by angels, adored by His people and feared by devils as the risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
   "Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:9-11.
     "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9.
