He began His ministry by being hungry, yet He is the Bread of Life.
Jesus ended His earthly ministry by being thirsty, yet He is the Living Water.
Jesus was weary, yet He is our rest.
Jesus paid tribute, yet He is the King.
Jesus was accused of having a demon, yet He cast out

Story – Jesus this, Jesus that.
Few years ago I was talking with folks from this church – they needed a pastor.
Really liked their church, seemed like great people.
After awhile I noticed – Jesus didn’t seem to have anything to do with this church.
Presbyterian – by the way.
JESUS AND UNITY
Jesus knew that people contribute their uniqueness to churches and therefore they make it stronger. Each person in the body (on the team) contains a host of knowledge, insight and experiences to a scenario, or a situation.

MISTAKEN FOR JESUS
Some years ago I heard an interesting story about a young boy living in Paris at the end of the World War II. He had been orphaned by the atrocities committed by the German forces. Now all alone, he was having to scrounge around the ruined city as best as he could to find

A nurse on the Pediatric Ward before listening to the little ones' heart beat would plug the stethoscope into their ears and let them listen to their own hearts. Their eyes would always light up with awe, but she never got a response to equal four-year old David's comment. She

Living our lives, trusting Jesus, does not mean that we will never feel futility or pointlessness. The clear implication of Isaiah 49: verse 4 is that Jesus felt this way. How many times did Jesus have to say, "ye of little faith."

JESUS TO THEM
A missionary, lost at sea, washed up on edge of a remote native village. Half-dead from exposure, starvation, and sea water, the natives nursed him back to health. He lived with them 20 years; never made a confession of faith, no songs, no sermons, no Scripture; but attended the
JESUS. THE TEACHER
Of all the responsibilities and great offices that Jesus filled, His being a teacher rated near the top, if not at the top. When He gave the Sermon on the Mount, He seated Himself and His disciples came to Him: and He opened His mouth and taught them.
