Have you watched the latest ‘crush’ crowd around the latest big name celebrity? They have the advantage of advertising from the media, on-line chats and news magazines galore, but all Jesus had was word of mouth.
Take a look at these ‘headlines’ from the Bible
Because of the crowd he told his disciples to have a small boat ready for him, to keep the people from crowding him. Then Jesus entered a house, and again a crowd gathered, so that he and his disciples were not even able to eat. (Mark 3:9, 20, NIV)
Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. (Mark 4:1, NIV)
So when you are following the latest celebrity big-shot, just remember that your Saviour is the biggest celebrity of all!
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” (Luke 1:32-33, NIV)
Prayer – Thanks God, for our celebrity Saviour! Amen
