Summary: To show how God gave us a hero
“Jesus is The Mighty God”
We want to understand the power of God available through the Christ Child, who is the “Mighty God?”
Who is your all-time hero? Who is it that you look up to because of their character or accomplishments? Some may immediately think of a family member; a sports figure (Michael Phelps); a veteran; a star entertainer; or a leader. It will be different for you than me. I would hope that Whoever it may be for you, that Jesus wants to be your significant hero. Jesus is your Mighty God. The Hebrew meaning of this concept is that God is a conqueror. The term is used at least 156 times in the Old Testament alone. It is usually associated with a warrior who is such a strong victor that he becomes legend, known as a national hero. Therefore, God is a hero for each and every one of us in the birth of Jesus Christ. Think about how a hero is typically made and gain a deeper appreciation for Jesus being our Mighty, Conquering God.
We know that Exposure/Positive Press Makes Some a Hero.
A man who stole a lot of money was named B. D. Cooper and no one knows where he is but the press is sure of what he did. I have read that this is not even his real name. He jumped out of a plane with the money but no one has heard of him or found him.
1. Jesus did not get much “exposure” or positive press. Who was there when he was born? Who were told the news of his birth? What great light appeared when He was born?
2. No one important announced His entrance into human flesh. God sent an angel to tell where he was born but no human announced the event.
WHO IS THIS MAN?
In chemistry, He turned water to wine. In biology, He was born without the normal conception. In physics, He disapproved the law of gravity when He ascended into heaven.
In economics, He disapproved the law of diminishing return by feeding 5000 men with two fishes & 5 loaves of bread. In medicine, He cured the sick and the blind without administering a single dose of drugs. In history, He is the beginning and the end.
In government, He said that he shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace.
In religion, He said no one comes to the Father except through him. So, who is He? He is Jesus! Join me and let’s celebrate him; He is worthy. Remain in God and seek his face always. Amen! In God, I’ve found everything! The Greatest Man in History.
Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. Feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us!
3. This Child born to us, the Son of God had so little worth mentioning on this earth that He entered life in a borrowed container and his body when dead was left it in a borrowed tomb. God does not do things the way man thinks.
4. Jesus did not fit in the first century’s version and is not the 21st century’s version, of a hero. Yet the bible says as told by Isaiah that He is the Mighty God!
