Proverbs of a 36 yr old man
Can anything good come from Nazareth? Come and see what the Lord has done. The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. Blessed is the one who is not offended by Christ. For God chose what is insignificant in the world, what is despised, what is nothing, in order to destroy what is something, and that so no one may boast in God's presence. Jesus came to save you through his life and resurrection. Through his life he saved you from eternal judgment and destruction. And through his resurrection from the dead He is giving you new life to live in now and forevermore. To the world and to yourself you may feel insignificant and small, but to Christ you are more than a conqueror. You are victorious because He came from simple Nazareth to then be enthroned on the Cross before all the universe! By the power of the Gospel invested in you through faith, you are king, priest, and ambassador for the Kingdom of Heaven. So, can anything good come from Nazareth? Yes, that same spirit that came out of Nazareth lives in us. Step out of your Nazareth and carry your Cross. Dont be afraid, He has overcome.
