Jesus Christ: The Carpenter's Son Who Became A Superstar
Jesus is one of the world's outstanding religious leaders, a teacher, philosopher and a prophet, even though the Bible doesn't mention his name as one of the prophets.
He was an ordinary young Jew born into a family of Carpenters and he passed through a painful death of crucifixion. The fact about this great teacher is: He never commanded an army, but today many people from all walks of life and army generals bow to revere him.
He wasn't an author, but books about him are widely read and handled by the best literature professors. He never ruled a nation but today, some world presidents, politicians, and monarchs of high esteem adore him.
He never had any university education, but twenty centuries later, his works are being preached, archived and thought by best professors in science, arts, and religion.
The great teacher said: "I am the light of the world." John 8:12. Yes! He is the light of science, politics, literature, humanity, and civilization. The greatest liberty ever given to man by God is 'choice.'
Would you therefore emulate and imitate this great teacher, to be happy, faithful, sincere and healthy in life or you simply like to walk in the opposite way? In God's kingdom, there is nothing called 'Failure or Impossible.'
The two words of stumble block, are the tools of unbelievers, the reason many fail in life, while others succeed in life. Take away those shackles of your mind and let your faith and the truth set you free to prosperity and success.
