An Extraordinary Death #2 of 3

March 20, 2009

But believers understand that it was their hands holding the nails that were pounded into the Savior. Today: why the cross is the defining moment, not just for Jesus, but for the entire human race.

For athletes, the greatest moments of life are defined by victories in the arena, at the playing field or on the racetrack. But Christ's defining moment was a cruel death on the cross. For those who believe, that death bought forgiveness of sins. And for that, we must be eternally grateful. Today: we'll begin to experience the horrific price paid for our salvation.

Some athletes loom larger than life. Their personas transcend their sports prowess, and make them cultural icons. Genuine authority flows from within, no matter who you are. Jesus Christ had a unique authority, an authority we feel even today, two thousand years down the road. How can He still command such devotion?

Some celebrity athletes talk big, but when their performance lags behind their egos, they're not taken seriously anymore. Real authority flows from who you are, not how loud you can talk. Jesus Christ had an authority unmatched by any man who has ever lived. Today: more evidence of an authority that demands our response.

When you size up any group of people, it's easy to tell who's in charge...there's something intangible about real leaders. In all of history, no one has ever projected the authority that Jesus had. People were either drawn to Him, or, they wanted to kill Him. For anyone confronting the real Jesus, there was, and still is, no middle ground, and today we'll see why.

In an Olympic race, you either win, or lose. Coming in fourth is like bringing up the rear. The same is true in the spiritual realm. All of us are either winning or losing eternally. And our relationships with Christ determine where those future ages will be spent. He made claims no other man has ever made, and backed them up with incontrovertible miracles. Stay with us.

People once thought that running a four-minute mile would take a miracle. Well, one day, someone did it, it's no longer a miracle. Real miracles include raising the dead, and feeding the five thousand...the kind of miracles Jesus did to prove He came from God. Today: more about the amazing life of Christ, a man whose claims were validated by His miracles.

We all cheer when an athlete suffers a serious injury, and later, gets back in the game. That's called a "miracle comeback." But for real miracles, we need to look to Jesus Christ, who demonstrated authority over nature itself in the amazing deeds He performed. Today: why miracles were the evidence that Jesus was, and is, the Son of God.

He never wrote a book, never owned a home, He never traveled extensively. Still today, He's the centerpiece of the human race. Jesus Christ lived a perfect life and died a perfect sacrifice. Not even His enemies could point to a single character flaw. He is worthy of our absolute obedience, since He is the only mediator between God and humanity.

An Olympic track judge has to be above reproach. Otherwise, no one would trust him to adjudicate a gold medal race. In matters of faith, a Savior has to be sinless to be a sacrifice for our sins. Christ was sinless, something no other prophet or guru has ever claimed. Since sinful men and women bear sinful children, Christ's birth had to be different.
March 9, 2009
There are many things that set Christ apart from all others who claim to point the way to God. His supernatural birth is one. Jesus was fully human, but had no earthly father. Born to a young Jewish maiden who had never known a man, His beginnings on earth were indeed extraordinary. So: just how important is the virgin birth?
