Jesus is very, very great . . . Is there anything great in the world that excites you, that you go out of your way to see or hear or experience? Christ made it! He thought it up. And He is ten million times greater in every respect - whatever it is, except sin.John Piper, "Christ Conceived By The Holy Spirit," Luke 1:26-37, March 11, 1984.
If you took all the greatest thinkers of every country and every century of the world and put them in a room with Jesus, they would shut their mouths and listen to the greatness of His wisdom. All the greatest generals would listen to His strategy. All the greatest musicians would listen to His music theory and His performance on every instrument . . . Jesus is very great. Words fail us to describe how great Jesus is.
There is nothing that Jesus cannot do a thousand times better than the person you admire most in any area of human endeavor under the sun . . . You admire politicians? - you admire physically beautiful people? - you admire intelligent people? - you admire musicians? - you admire sports? . . . Anything that you admire Jesus Christ can do ten thousand times better!
For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2
But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather
